Sunday, 14 September, 1828

This ever blessed day has again arrived and calls on us all to spend it in the service of God, who on the seventh day rested from the labor of forming the immense work of creation. I do not mean, by service of God, that merely going to church, or that there can be no real worship without it, but I mean that we should seriously think of ourselves and of the many favors we receive daily from our Creator, and that we should feel grateful and remember we are dependent on Him for every breath we draw, and humble ourselves before him in submission to his will, and not be elevated above our dependent situation. We should look on all men as our Brothers and relieve distress when we have the power.
