2. Sabbath and Snow Days
"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six
days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the
seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it
you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or
daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor
your animals, nor the alien within your gates. 11 For in
six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the
sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the
seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath
day and made it holy.
God commands us to rest and to let
the earth to rest!
