Lord of the Sabbath - Mark 2:23-28 Post 4

Chalkboard: Mark 2:23-28 Post 4 (brokenbreadandsmallfish.com)
They were serving the Sabbath
the law
and their rules
But the Sabbath
and the law
were to point us to You

We've made an idol 
of the thing
You gave us
to bless
Instead of it
serving us
we now 
serve it.

If we so easily become
slaves
to the Sabbath rest
What do we do
with the bread?

~

The Bread is to nourish
The Sabbath is to rest
The temple is to worship
The King - to lead and fight for us
The Priest to make a sacrifice
acceptable to the Lord...


~

I
wanted to be Lord
myself.
wanted to be
in control
But 
must worship something
so
I worship 
the gifts.
and
I work and work and work
to serve
what was supposed 
to give 
us rest

and I'm 
too tired to love

or...
maybe 
it's just an excuse.

Maybe
it's just an excuse
not to love.

~

But...

If I could remember
who is Lord
of the Sabbath
and the bread
maybe
I could finally
and love
and learn 
to rest.
