In a day when many find excuses to avoid keeping the Sabbath Day holy to the Lord, we look again at the fourth commandment and consider its purpose, its provision and its principle. We are brought to realize that there is something seriously wrong with our hearts if we would rather spend a day on our own pleasures and amusements than with the Lord, and that if we do not enjoy this day now, neither will we enjoy heaven, which the day foreshadows.

We are urged to repent of our Sabbath-breaking, to return to a Biblical observance of the day and to experience the full delight and blessing to our souls that it is intended to be.
