Summary
Why the need to abstain? Obviously it wasn't because of tiredness! God's resting from creation teaches us that as human beings created in the image of God, we too need to make time for rest and purposely abstain from interfering with creation one day of the week. The passion to create can sometimes be dangerous — especially for a technological society that prides itself on its ability to create, manipulate and control the world around it.

Talking Points
Significance of 7; Sabbath; God Resting; Importance of Work; Pendulum Swing; Rest in Jesus.
