Leviticus 23:3 KJV
Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein : it is the sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.
I had a friend in school who never studied any of his books on Saturdays. In fact, his ritual started on Friday evenings when we returned from the canteen.
He’s the first person who comes to mind whenever I hear or read about the Sabbath. Arguments about the Sabbath have ranged from which day it should be, to what extent of work one should or not do. Another school of thought is that 6days is 6days, so one could individually decide which day is his/her 7th day, for which he/she may observe the Sabbath.
But what was the actual significance of the Sabbath? It was a period for the Jews to forget about the cares of this world/life and shift their focus on God, their Redeemer. Aside the health benefits, the Sabbath provides very good spiritual restoration.
The Sabbath is the Lord’s as Jesus put it, but He also said that it was made for man. Whichever school of thought you belong to, spend quality time each week, worrying about nothing, rather shifting your energies unto your Father in worship or prayer. You will reap the benefits.
Have a blessed day.
