"By modern revelation the Lord has commanded that on the Sabbath we 'rest from [our] labors' and 'pay [our] devotions unto the Most High' and that on this day we 'do none other thing' (D&C 59:10, 13). When we keep this commandment of our Creator, we qualify for His promised blessings. He who created us knows what patterns of behavior will allow us to achieve our maximum physical and spiritual performance, and He has given us commandments designed to guide us into that behavior. When we honor the Sabbath day, we separate ourselves from most of the world, but we are blessed richly for it."
