Freedom.

Many describe Shabbat – and subsequently reject it – as the “You can’t” to their “But I want to.”

Yet Shabbat is, more than anything, a gift of time that allows you to question your true wants and desires. Do you really want to? Maybe the answer, if given time to think about it, is: “No – no, I really don’t want to … but I have to.”

Ah! Then Shabbat comes as the great release that proclaims: “No! You don’t have to! In fact, I’ll make it easy for you – you can’t!”

“I know,” Shabbat says. “You’re welcome.”
