Home is not a pit stop. Home is not a common area to rest between activities. Home is the place and the people where we are most ourselves and where we find true rest. Many of us own a house but have no true home. We are homeless.
The single most important thing we do in our family to establish a true home in this world is to keep the Sabbath. What is the Sabbath? It is the day of rest; one in seven. It is one of the ten commandments. It is not for Jews only, it is for all human beings and with good reason.
There must be a designated time and place where we can find rest on a regular basis, in order to regain our souls. Otherwise, we get confused and lost and can no longer find true home. To live alienated from yourself, your loved ones, and your true home is a terrible thing. This is neither necessary nor inevitable. There is another way.
