Recently I read a survey done by a doctor who cited the happiest people on earth. Near the top of the list was a group of Christians called Seventh-day Adventists, who are religious, literally, about the Sabbath. This doctor noted that they lived ten years longer than the average American.19 I did the math: if I Sabbath every seven days, it adds up to—wait for it—ten years over a lifetime. Almost exactly. So when I say the Sabbath is life giving, that’s not empty rhetoric. If this study is to be believed, every day you Sabbath, you’re (statistically and scientifically) likely to get back an elongated life.
