“And he commanded them that they should observe the sabbath day, and keep it holy, and also every day they should give thanks to the Lord their God.” – Mosiah 18:23
“The Sabbath calls for constructive thoughts and acts, and if one merely lounges about doing nothing on the Sabbath, he is breaking it. To observe it, one will be on his knees in prayer, preparing lessons, studying the gospel, meditating, visiting the ill and distressed, sleeping, reading wholesome material, and attending all the meetings of that day to which he is expected.” – Spencer W. Kimball
