This was a beautiful explanation about the meaning and purpose of the sabbath day. I love the clarity it brings regarding the teachings of President Nelson. I miss understood the showing a sign to the Lord on the sabbath day part of his words. The thought came to me that I need to teach my children better what sign we want to give God. The idea of reaching out to more in the community and ward during Sunday time came clearly to me. Thank you, Brother!

Thank you, Craig, for this thoughtful piece. It helped me think more deeply about not only the Sabbath but my relationship with Father.

I so enjoyed this pair of articles! I like the explanations of the Hebrew & Greek words. After reading the articles, the quote from President Nelson seems so much clearer and significant to me. “It wasn’t until later that I learned from the scriptures that my conduct and my attitude on the Sabbath constituted a sign between me and my Heavenly Father. With that understanding, I no longer needed lists of dos and don’ts. When I had to make a decision whether or not an activity was appropriate for the Sabbath, I simply asked myself, “What sign do I want to give to God?” That question made my choices about the Sabbath day crystal clear.” Conference 4/2015 Elder Russell M. Nelson
