Achieve Nothing

The Sabbath is a day of anti-achievement.  It is a time when we have a break from all of the striving for human attainment and stop long enough to realize that we are blessed simply by being creatures made by a God who is Love.

Today, don’t do anything that helps you achieve anything.  Instead, take a break from trying to be successful, even successful at religion.  Realize you are loved simply in the fact that you exist.
