Today I, ____________________, will prepare so that I can reserve Sunday for the activities that are appropriate for the Sabbath day.
“Sunday is not a day for shopping, recreation, or athletic events. Do not seek entertainment or make purchases on this day.” – For the Strength of Youth
I, ____________________, commit not do activities that are inappropriate for the Sabbath this coming Sunday.
“Over a lifetime of observation, it is clear to me that the farmer who observes the Sabbath day seems to get more done on his farm than he would if he worked seven days. The mechanic will be able to turn out more and better products in six days than in seven. The doctor, the lawyer, the dentist, the scientist will accomplish more by trying to rest on the Sabbath than if he tries to utilize every day of the week for his professional work. I would counsel all students, if they can, to arrange their schedules so that they do not study on the Sabbath. If students and other seekers after truth will do this, their minds will be quickened and the infinite Spirit will lead them to the verities they wish to learn. This is because God has hallowed his day and blessed it as a perpetual covenant of faithfulness. (See Ex. 31:16.)” – The Lord’s Day by James E. Faust
