    The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath

    Mark 2:27

    When I was younger (early childhood through early adulthood) I did not enjoy going to church.  I wish I had known that the Sabbath was made for me.  In my mind, going to church is an integral part of the Sabbath.  If I’m not in church, the Sabbath is just like any other day.  Sabbath is my word of wisdom for today.

    If I’m in a bad mood before church, the negative is always lifted by the time I leave.  I also noticed that, when I need them, the Holy Spirit will remind me of sermons.  Other people have told me that if they skip church, their week doesn’t go well.

    On another level, I like seeing the kids in Sunday School become friends and stick together as they grow up.  My prayer is that they remain lifelong friends so that they can face the challenges of life with godly support and counsel.

    Some people have jobs that require them to work on the Sabbath.  Other people think they have something more important, or better, to do on a Sunday morning.  I wasn’t able to say this when I was a young woman, because I didn’t know any better; but now I can truly say to those people, “You’re missing out”.

     There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God . . .

    Hebrews 4:9


    The purpose of If I Knew Then What I Know Now is to share some insights that I wish someone had told me about when I was younger.  There’s a fuller explanation on my first post, written on May 14, 2012.
