Spiritual Food

"Our spiritual natures, needing spiritual food, shrink and die without it. Physical deterioration also results. Students should study their school subjects during the week and keep the Sabbath sacred."

President George Albert Smith said, "..that much of the sorrow and distress that is afficting and will continue to afflict mankind is traceable to the fact that they have ignored God's admonition to keep the Sabbath day holy." (Conf. Oct. 1935)

What are the consequences of obedience to this divine law? Spiritually it will help us "keep ourselves unspotted from the world."

Temporally, "the fulness of the earth" will be ours. All this is possible if we cheerfully keep this divine law.

Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign, May, 1971  p. 4
