I notice that you completely missed the part in Exodus where the people were instructed NOT to collect manna on the Sabbath, because the provision from the previous day was enough and would last.

Sabbath was not primarily about equality, or about helping people, or sharing. It was about resting because God rested, and because humans need the rest, and because God said so. Yes, Jesus healed people on the Sabbath, but I sense in your post a tendency to make the appropriate activities of the Sabbath just another set of "must do's" that are completely antithetical to the original concept of Sabbath rest.
Thanks for pointing out that no manna fell on the Sabbath.

I think you are reading into what am I saying. Jesus said, It is lawful to do good. And as I irretirated before that you have different assumption about the Sabbath. It was not just primarily for rest. It was sign. If God had ought to rest and not sustain life on earth what will happen in that 24 hours. We can do good on the sabbath. Police officers, nurses, doctors and other essential service to relief human suffering can still work on sabbath.

It was not burdensome day or day of idleness good for yourself. It was not made for selfish pleasure. It ought to be blessing for us and other people, we come into contact with. It is definitely not about ourselves and that is the character we need to develop that nothing is about ourselves.

In heaven, there will be no selfish people, why not start to practice it here.

Simply put, your statements about the purpose of the sabbath are not rooted in Scripture.

You clearly not understanding. There are other aspects to the Sabbath other than just resting.

And I have shared with you the scriptures. And the perfect example, would be Jesus Christ. If you want deeper understanding of Sabbath, go and read the what Jesus did on the Sabbath.

You are getting confused with the Sabbath of the Pharisees.

God made the Sabbath a delight. Humans give the assumption that it is worrysome day and restricted. It is a sercice of love.

Isaiah 58
13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

I sincerely pray that God will open up your understanding.

I sincerely hope that you drop the self-righteous attitude. You are confusing the practice of the sabbath with its purpose.
