"Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to the Lord."

Countless references appear in the Bible commanding sabbath observance. Yet take a look around and you'll see the frantic pace of a busy "get it done now" world continues without relief. Next time the seventh day comes around, take your rest seriously. Plan for it, do it, savor it. You'll find yourself in a peaceful state of blessed contentment.
