We western Christians have become lazy and more secular in our worldview. In doing so we have downplayed or ignored the need to Sabbath, to slow down and acknowledge God in our week. How many of us take time to help the widow, feed the poor neighbor? In this video from Pod for Israel we are reminded that God has designated certain times in our short lives to slow down, enjoy life and thank him and worship him.
The Passover is the Jewish celebration of God’s liberating the Israelites from Egyptian slavery in 1513 B.C.E. God commanded the Israelites to remember that important event each year on the 14th day of the Jewish month Abib, which was later called Nisan.—Exodus 12:42; Leviticus 23:5.
