THE SABBATH SERVES US


A story is told of a wagon train of Christians traveling from St. Louis to Oregon. They observed the Sabbath day by stopping to rest and not traveling. But as winter approached some in the group began to panic that they would not reach Oregon before the snow fell. So they proposed to start traveling on the Sabbath days as well. The group was split over the idea so they split into to traveling groups - one would travel all seven days and one only six days.


The group which rested arrived in Oregon first. The people and the horses were so rested that they could travel much more efficiently on the other six days.


The Sabbath was made for man. WE DON’T SERVE THE SABBATH; THE SABBATH SERVES US.
