Honoring the Sabbath is one of the 10 commandments listed in this chapter. This passage wraps up by saying, “So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.” In Matthew 7:14, Jesus says, “But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
God, help us to choose the narrow road that leads to life. Help us not to waiver but to remain steadfast in your truth and your purpose for our life. But more importantly, use us to help others find their way. In Jesus’ name, amen.
