The Sabbath

A Shabbat Reading:

There are days when we seek things for ourselves
and measure failure by what we do not gain.
On the Sabbath we seek not to acquire but to share.
  Heavens
These are the day we exploit nature
as if it were a horn of plenty that can never be exhausted.
On the Sabbath we stand in wonder before the mystery of creation.
 
There are days when we act as if we cared nothing
for the rights of others.
On the Sabbath we are reminded that justice is our duty
and a better world our goal.
 
Therefore we welcome Shabbat.
Day of rest, day of wonder, day of peace.
