Keep the Sabbath Day Holy

When we keep the sabbath day holy the blessings are joy, we are kept more fully unspotted from the world, and the fullness of all that the earth can offer can be ours.
In Isaiah 58:13-14 we are told that if we will only honor the father and not do whatever we please, we will ride on the high places of the earth and be fed.
In Mark 2:23-28 we are reminded that the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. I think this means that we are blessed with rest, being fed, and happiness by worshipping God on the seventh day of each week. If we have something that has to be done then we are not breaking a commandment. God knows our needs and will not shun us if there is something needful to be done. We should just not seek to do all that we want to do on that day that is set aside for worshipping God. Every day we should come closer to him, but this one day is set aside on purpose for us to gain a relationship with Him.
