A few weeks ago my wife and I went to Olive Garden to eat. While there, she observed a family having dinner. None of them were talking to each other. Why? They were all too busy on their cellphones - the whole time! How sad. A family cant even spend quality time together because they are on their cellphones. What they needed to do was put the cell phones away, forget abut Angry Birds and Facebook, and just relax and enjoy the fact that they were together. This is what keeping the Sabbath properly is all about. Its not about what you can and cant do, its about spending 24 hours of quality time with God without the distractions that are around us all week (bills, sports, work, school, etc.). Its about enjoying creation and creator in an intimate way. Its about 24 hours where you can be dead to the world and all of its stresses and just chill. Man, I love it.
