When you choose to ignore the Sabbath, you choose to become friends with control.
Being in the driver seat of control means that God is not even riding shotgun. As a matter of fact, you have placed him somewhere in the trunk.
As humans we believe that our solutions are better than God’s. This disillusionment and tunnel vision focus leads to bondage. And in turn, this bondage leads to coming up with false concepts about God and his love for us.
Our addiction to being in the driver seat means that we value:
Toxicity over purification
Control over trust
Slavery our freedom
Harmful over beneficial
Because we focus on what we have a right to do. And Paul tackled this clearly:
1 Corinthians 6:12 NIV
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
How has control become your friend?
