Sabbath Quote that hits home

Our Sabbath observance will not give us genuine rest if we use it merely as an excuse to be workaholics the rest of the week. Only in the sure knowledge that we don’t have to manufacture our success in life by our own efforts can we have the freedom not to be continuously working to make our own way.
Marva J. Dawn
Keeping the Sabbath Wholly

Wow- that really speaks to me about an attitude of faith. This is what I especially need to hold onto as a pastor.


  1. Right there with you.

    Welcome to the revgalblogpals

  2. Hmm. I like this! I am not a rev person, so I actually use part of my Sabbath to do some work...which allows me to have a little Sabbath time every day. :)

    welcome to you!

  3. I wish I could hear the sermon series. Appreciate the Sabbath posts.

  4. Hi Amy--
    Love the post on Sabbaths!

    And this is Martha from Wesley here, too--now in WIndsor, Canada...

    Good to see some Wesleyites on the blogroll!

  5. What a great quote. I'm starting to realize how much I'll need a Sabbath once I'm in full-time ministry.

    Welcome to the ring!

  6. That's a great quote. Welcome to RevGals!
