The Sabbath

President Kimball taught how we might observe the Sabbath: “The Sabbath is a day:
  • on which to take inventory—to analyze our weaknesses, 
  • to confess our sins to our associates and our Lord. 
  • on which to fast in ‘sackcloth and ashes.’ 
  • on which to read good books, a day to contemplate and ponder, …
  • to study the scriptures and to prepare sermons, 
  • to nap and rest and relax, 
  • to visit the sick, 
  • to preach the gospel, 
  • to proselyte, 
  • to visit quietly with the family and get acquainted with our children, 
  • for proper courting, a day to do good, 
  • to drink at the fountain of knowledge 
  • of instruction, 
  • to seek forgiveness of our sins, 
  • for the enrichment of our spirit and our soul, 
  • to restore us to our spiritual stature, 
  • to partake of the emblems of his sacrifice and atonement,
  • to contemplate the glories of the gospel and of the eternal realms, 
  • to climb high on the upward path toward our Heavenly Father” 
(Teachings, 216).
