The Lord commands us to rest

Exodus 20:8
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Our hearts are prone to look for loopholes

Exodus 20:9-10
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, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.

We could miss out on the one thing that we all need in our lives

Exodus 20:11
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore
the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Matthew 11:28-30
28  Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for
I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
