Sabbath -two-

Give out a thought:

‘We often forget that the Sabbath rest principle included the needs of the livestock. ‘Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest…” (Ex 23:12) The whole point of this instruction is that our dominion over the whole earth and the little creatures that creep upon it is to be a compassionate dominion. We are not to rape the earth but to care for it – kindly, lovingly, tenderly.’ (Richard Foster)

Give out an action:
Buy a plant/ packet of seeds and give it to someone with a request that they look after it and help it to grow.

  1. Andrew, these are valuable and immensely helpful thoughts. You are reviving and sharing tremendous, sensitive insights. Bless your heart for doing so. I have no idea at all how to work these blog postings, and my twelve year old daughter is at school, but if this does somehow make it your way successfully, please accept my thanks, and my strong encouragement.
