Best Sabbath Quotes

  1. “A world without a Sabbath would be like a man without a smile, like summer without flowers, and like a homestead without a garden. It is the most joyous day of the week.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
  2. “A truth of the gospel is not a truth until you live it. You do not really believe in tithing until you pay it. The word of wisdom to you is not a truth of the gospel until you keep it. The Sabbath day is not a holy day unless you observe it. . . . A friend is not a friend unless you defend him.” ~ Harold B. Lee , Sabbath quotes friends
  3. “On the Sabbath day, we are remembering that my relationship with God did not begin with what I’ve done, it is not sustained by what I do, and it is not guaranteed to the end by my effort or work. I’m saved from beginning to end by Jesus’ work.” ~ Mark Driscoll
  4. “As we keep or break the Sabbath Day we nobly save or meanly lose the last best hope by which man rises.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

  5. “This Sabbath day has been designated as a day of thanksgiving, a day of gratitude-even a day of prayer. We pause, we ponder, we reflect on the blessings an all-wise Heavenly Father has bestowed upon us, His children, by bringing peace to the battlefield of war and comfort to the hearts of so many in this wonderful world where we live and which we call home” ~ Thomas S. Monson
  6. “O what a blessing is Sunday, interposed between the waves of worldly business like the divine path of the Israelites through the sea!

I can truly declare that to me the Sabbath has been invaluable.” ~ William Wilberforce
  7. “You know, it’s ironic to me that Christians want to keep the Ten Commandments in our schools because Christianity has abrogated four of the Ten Commandments. For example, the Sabbath day according to the Ten Commandments is Saturday, not Sunday. And the reason is because God rested, not because Jesus was resurrected.” ~ Alan Dershowitz
  8. “Sunday is the core of our civilization, dedicated to thought and reverence.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  9. “Money gained on Sabbath-day is a loss, I dare to say. No blessing can come with that which comes to us, on the devil’s back, by our willful disobedience of God’s law. The loss of health by neglect of rest, and the loss of soul by neglect of hearing the gospel, soon turn all seeming profit into real loss.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
  10. “Many feel the terms “Sabbath day” and “play day” are synonymous. . . . But I . . . know that remembering to keep the Sabbath day holy is one of the most important commandments we can observe in preparing us to be the recipients of the whisperings of the Spirit.” ~ H. David Burton
  11. “The Sabbath day has become a day of pleasure, a day of boisterous conduct, a day in which the worship of God has departed, and the worship of pleasure has taken its place. I am sorry to say that many of the Latter-day Saints are guilty of this. We should repent.” ~ Joseph Fielding Smith
  12. “Day of the Lord, as all our days should be!” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  14. “Thou art my single day, God lends to leaven What were all earth else, with a feel of heaven.” ~ Robert Browning
  15. “We don’t go to Sabbath meetings to be entertained or even solely
    to be instructed. We go to worship the Lord. It is an individual
    responsibility, and regardless of what is said from the pulpit, if one
    wishes to worship the Lord in spirit and truth, he may do so by
    attending his meetings, partaking of the sacrament, and
    contemplating the beauties of the gospel If the service is a
    failure to you, you have failed. No one can worship for you. You
    must do your own waiting upon the Lord.” ~ Spencer W. Kimball
  16. “The Sabbath-day is the savings-bank of humanity.” ~ Arthur Frederick Saunders

  17. “You know, it’s ironic to me that Christians want to keep the Ten Commandments in our schools, because Christianity has abrogated four of the Ten Commandments. For example, the Sabbath day according to the Ten Commandments is Saturday, not Sunday. And the reason is because God rested, not because Jesus was resurrected.” ~ Alan Dershowitz
  18. “Be an example in your Church activity-honor the Sabbath day, attend your meetings, observe the Word of Wisdom, pay your tithes and offerings, support your leaders, and otherwise keep the commandments. Serve cheerfully and gratefully in every calling you receive. Live worthy of a temple recommend and enjoy the sweet, sacred spirit that comes from frequent temple attendance.” ~ Ezra Taft Benson
  19. “Now, I know it’s hard, particularly for our young people, to choose to observe the Sabbath day when athletic teams on which they so much want to participate regularly schedule games on Sunday. I too know it seems trivial to many who are in need of just a few items on the Sabbath to quickly stop at a convenience store to make a Sunday purchase. But I also know that remembering to keep the Sabbath day holy is one of the most important commandments we can observe in preparing us to be the recipients of the whisperings of the Spirit” ~ H. David Burton
  20. “Let every one be fully convinced in his own mind.” ~ Francois Rabelais

  21. “We had no churches, no religious organizations, no sabbath day, no holidays, and yet we worshiped. Sometimes the whole tribe would assemble to sing and pray; sometimes a smaller number, perhaps only two or three. The songs had a few words, but were not formal. The singer would occasionally put in such words as he wished instead of the usual tone sound. Sometimes we prayed in silence; sometimes each one prayed aloud; sometimes an aged person prayed for all of us. At other times one would rise and speak to us of our duties to each other and to Usen. Our services were short.” ~ Geronimo
  22. “I further testify that when we eventually see things through the proper perspective of eternal truth, we will be amazed at how much we were blessed in important though often unperceived ways through keeping the Sabbath Day holy.” ~ John H. Groberg
  23. “The Sundaies of man’s life, Threaded together on time’s string, Make bracelets to adorn the wife Of the eternal, glorious King. On Sunday heaven’s gates stand ope; Blessings are plentiful and rife. More plentiful than hope.” ~ George Herbert
  24. “E’en Sunday shines no Sabbath-day to me.” ~ Alexander Pope

  25. “And where are we told in the Scriptures that we are to keep the first day at all? We are commanded to keep the seventh, but we are nowhere commanded to keep the first day …. The reason why we keep the first day of the week holy instead of the seventh is for the same reason that we observe many other things, not because the Bible, but because the church has enjoined it.” ~ Isaac Williams , Sabbath quotes Bible
  26. “O what a blessing is Sunday, interposed between the waves of worldly business like the divine path of the Israelites through the sea.” ~ Samuel Wilberforce
  27. “A mission is not just a casual thing-it is not an alternative program in the Church. Neither is a mission a matter of choice any more than tithing is a choice, any more than sacrament meeting is a choice, any more than the Word of Wisdom is a choice. Of course, we have our free agency, and the Lord has given us choices. We can do as we please. We can go on a mission or we can remain home. But every normal young man is as much obligated to go on a mission as he is to pay his tithing, attend his meetings, keep the Sabbath day holy, and keep his life spotless and clean.” ~ Spencer W. Kimball
  28. “The state was made for man, not man for state.” ~ Albert Einstein

  31. “How still the morning of the hallow’d day! Mute is the voice of rural labor, hush’d The ploughboy’s whistle, and the milkmaid’s song.” ~ James Grahame
  32. “I do not love the Sabbath, The soapsuds and the starch, The troops of solemn people Who to Salvation march. I take my book, I take my stick On the Sabbath day, In woody nooks and valleys, I hide myself away. To ponder there in quiet God’s Universal Plan, Resolved that church and Sabbath Were never made for man.” ~ Robert Graves.
