Fourth Commandment


My pastor at FBC is currently going through a series on the Ten Commandments, and I remembered these hand motions that my pastor at TBC back in CT taught me as a kid.

The fourth commandment is: "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 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 male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 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." - Exodus 20:8-11 (ESV)

The hand motion is: four fingers, thinking of a four person family getting into their four door car which has four wheels and going to church (it's kind of a stretch but it connects eventually to the sabbath).

Also, it's September! Woohoo, my favorite month. Time for Fall, and Birthday, and No More Summer Heat (one can hope, right), and coziness, and Renaissance Faire, and the Big E, and all that to say good things.
