The Rest of Your Story with Nick Taliaferro: Episode 8, “Trust”



“The Sabbath isn’t about math; God wasn’t trying to see if humankind would successfully be able to count from 1 to 7. Instead, the Sabbath was God establishing a foundation of Trust as the basis for the relationship that would exist between humankind and the Creator.

“The idea was that God demonstrated his trustworthiness to the First Pair (Adam/Eve) by showing what God had already done for them, and furthermore by then entrusting them with everything. This great act of Trust – on God’s part – invites the newly-created couple to respond in-kind, to live in a trusting way towards God.

“That’s still what Sabbath intends to do: to remind us that God is faithful, and to invite us to respond faithfully in return.”
