23 And he commanded them that they should observe the sabbath day, and keep it holy, and also every day they should give thanks to the Lord their God….
25 And there was one day in every week that was set apart that they should gather themselves together to teach the people, and to worship the Lord their God, and also, as often as it was in their power, to assemble themselves together.
The Sabbath is a holy day in which to do worthy and holy things. Abstinence from work and recreation is important but insufficient. The Sabbath calls for constructive thoughts and acts, and if one merely lounges about doing nothing on the Sabbath, he is breaking it. To observe it, one will be on his knees in prayer, preparing lessons, studying the gospel, meditating, visiting the ill and distressed, sleeping, reading wholesome material, and attending all the meetings of that day to which he is expected. To fail to do these proper things is a transgression on the omission side (The Miracle of Forgiveness, Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1969, pp. 96–97, quoted in “The Lord’s Day,” James E. Faust, General Conference, October 1991).
Tomorrow, I will follow the example of the Savior by engaging in constructive and appropriate activities which enable me to keep the Sabbath Day holy. I will follow the counsel of the prophet Alma and will attend my church meetings with the intent of teaching and learning the gospel and worshipping the Lord.
