Mosiah 18:23, 25, 27, 29

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.

27 And again Alma commanded that the people of the church should impart of their substance, every one according to that which he had …

29 … and they did walk uprightly before God, imparting to one another both temporally and spiritually according to their needs and their wants.

When Alma established the Church among the believers, Sabbath day observance and giving freely to each other were among the first practices established. They go together. 

The Sabbath day is not a day to do nothing. It’s a day to rest from OUR labors. It’s a day to get outside ourselves and serve God, worship God, teach about God, and learn about God as we serve and strengthen one another. 

And it’s done in simple ways. 

Jesus went about doing good on the Sabbath and we can too—today.
