Weekly Calendar

Ex 23:14-16  Three times you shall keep a feast to me in the year.  You shall keep the feast of Unleavened Bread (Passover) And the feast of Harvest (Pentecost) and the feast of Ingathering (Tabernacles) which is at the end of the year, when you reap the harvests out of your field.

Every year God commanded the Israelites to keep 3 feasts (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles), times when they would sacrifice and celebrate their relationship with God. There were also a number of special Sabbath (rest) days apart from the weekly Sabbath. This meant that a considerable amount of time was separated unto God each year. God commanded them to take this time out of their religious calendar.

Herein lies a message for us. If we are to have regular periods of rest we must purposely  block out those times in our calendar week. By doing this we are forced to organise our appointments around these times; and if we will hold to our new system, rest  will become a regular part of our lives, as important as all other times. Without such a system to anchor rest into our weekly lives all our purpose will dribble away like water down a drain pipe. We will lose the habit and end up with nothing.

TRY IT – IT WORKS!

Meditation point: Am I determined to block out a weekly time in my calendar for a period of rest.
