Lent, 3rd Sunday (B)

The 10 Commandments are all pretty much common sense... except the third commandment. God wants a day dedicated to him, and he wants you to honor him by not working. We are imitating God who rested on the 7th day. We are celebrating Freedom from slavery.

Christians have two additional reasons to celebrate. We celebrate Jesus' Resurrection and we look forward to the unending rest of Heaven. Worship God and take a day of rest. Spend time with family and friends, take a nap, go for a walk, play a game, visit, make a nice meal together. Renew your family, cultural, social, and religious life.

God loves his children and doesn't want us trapped in the hamster wheel of greed and material success. Keeping the sabbath holy will drive the money changers out from the temple of your heart.
