Besides all its deep theological meaning, or even its experiential heavenly pleasures, the Sabbath serves one nitty-gritty earthly function: it gives the family time to be together, and in today's hectic, fast-paced society, that benefit alone makes the day precious.

If God thought that man in Paradise, even before sin, needed the Sabbath, how much more do we need it today?
