Day of Delight

Weekly Devotional Posted on 07/21/2017
Day of Delight
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

The Sabbath should be made so interesting to our families that its weekly return will be hailed with joy. In no better way can parents exalt and honor the Sabbath than by devising means to impart proper instruction to their families and interesting them in spiritual things, giving them correct views of the character of God and what He requires of us in order to perfect Christian characters and attain to eternal life. Parents, make the Sabbath a delight, that your children may look forward to it and have a welcome in their hearts for it.

Child Guidance, p. 536

Sabbath Tip
With planning and some creativity, you can help your kids yearn for the Sabbath. Let them take part in worship activities at home and at church, and take time to plan a variety of special projects you can do together—such as taking food to a shut-in or the homeless, singing for nursing home residents, giving out Christian literature or DVDs, or taking a trip to a special park or nature preserve to study the works of God.
