I think Vincent Willem van Gogh nailed our passage in this painting!
Every Festival was about the Sabbath. It was about taking a time to rest and celebrate God as well as remember what he had done. It was something for them to look forward to. I think we would do well in celebrating these feasts today; to remember and get ready for times of celebrating God. Times of rest and set vacations would do our souls good. Sunday is coming and it’s a Sabbath…how do you observe it? Is there any rest for your soul this week?
