How different are the ideas on the use of this day. Some employ it for pleasure and soon have their carriages in readiness and away to see some friend and spend the day in making arrangements for some pecuniary improvement. Others choose this day to transact business that would occupy time in the week and keep them from their employment. Others meet and discuss the political news of the day and mention over the different individuals, best calculated to legislate. Others make it a day of ease and think of nothing. And a few repair to church to hear the word of God and think of the day of Judgment and imagine they are preparing themselves to enter into everlasting rest at the close of life. This just we should do, give ourselves up to God.
