Dear Dr.Brown, I can understand that for a young lad like you - it is hard to imagine that humans need to rest. Oh, wait, you might have learned that we need to sleep regularly to function well? - Anyway - when you will grow older, it will be easier for you to understand that rest is a great gift from God - as Jesus says - the Sabbath was made for humans, not humans for the Sabbath. If we realize how amazingly great the gift - what Jesus did for us - by paying our sins - our natural response should be with loving Him - more and more as we realize how miserable we are by ourselves according to the standards of our Lord. And this love should lead us to looking for and doing what Jesus would like us to do - like a child who realize their parents love seeks to do something that will make their parents happy. And yet, why do so many oppose to celebrate the Shabbat? - something that was made for us... is this really the most difficult commandment we are given in the Bible? ... somehow I can think of a lot that is much harder instructions to follow than to take time to rest.
