Some people just can’t stop.

Even though they need to…

Or feel guilty if they do.


Here’s the cure


(1)  according to the Bible

(2)  according to Jesus.


For more use the DOOR.





(1)  “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work…”  –Ex. 20:8-9


(2)  “Do not think I [Jesus] have come to abolish the Law…”  –Mt. 5:17.


   Jesus followed the Law without sinning and yes, He fulfilled its purpose. Over and over again He taught that people should trust in Him and live according to God’s Law, emphasizing the 10 Commandments. The Sabbath, according to the Bible, is the seventh day of the week and it’s a day set aside to worship God–not just in church, but privately.

   And also to rest.

   Stopping to do this is a command right up there with “Don’t murder,”  “Don’t commit adultery, and “Honor one’s parents.” According to the Bible, this commandment has never been changed.

   But what about Sunday?

   It’s nowhere mentioned in the Bible.

   Nothing wrong with worship on that day or any other day, however. But realize that regular Sunday worship didn’t begin until the 4th century AD when a pope on his own “changed” the Sabbath to Sunday and even forbade and punished people for Saturday worship. And “rest” or stopping? That just disappeared for most Christians.

   If God set aside a whole day for worship (in its many forms) and true rest without doing the dishes, isn’t it sinful to ignore this?

   And, at least for one day a week to not worry about the dishes?
