“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:” – Isaiah 58:13
“Keeping the Sabbath day holy is much more than just physical rest. It involves spiritual renewal and worship.” – James E. Faust
