Elul 7

“On the seventh day God completed the work which God had been doing…then God blessed the seventh day and called it holy, because on it God ceased from all the work of Creation.” (Genesis 1:32-33)

When reflecting on the work of creation, God chose to do this work one day at a time. At the end of it all, God rested, establishing a Sabbath as a critical and sacred pattern for healthy living – a guidepost for spiritual wellness. Torah teaches that taking a break can be holy. Shabbat is our climax of creation – let it renew your soul.  

Where are those “Shabbat moments” in your life in which you take time for yourself? Remember to carry them into your every day.
