Devarim, Words, and Shabbat Observance – JLD

Brother Chris did an excellent job opening up Devarim or Words, Deuteronomy 1:1 – 3:22. There is a lot of summarizing and retelling in this book, but one point that should not be missed is the power of our words. When we murmur or complain against God, we do not invoke the blessings. Then when you find yourself in a wilderness of sorts, know that God is with you, and will provide for the meek. And when you come up against an enemy or giant obstacle, remember it is the Lord your God who fights for you. Tristen (age 5) forwarded a praise report of found swimming googles, and we prayed for PTSD struggles, then Rabbi Jonathan taught about Shabbat observance. The message kicked of by discussing the Love Georgetown Event (https://www.lovegeorgetown.org), which just so happens to be on a Saturday. What qualifies as work, and what are we prohibited from doing, on the Seventh Day? Listen and learn.
