Resting Days

At this season of the year the thoughts of many are turned to the prospect of rest, a surcease from work, a holiday or vacation. We know that as "labourers together with God" our daily work is divine service; yet, like children released from school at the term's end, we are expectantly happy in joyful anticipation of relaxation from the daily round and common task. Then, surely, as workers together with divine Principle we do not cherish the desire to enter the enemy's camp for so-called enjoyment or for the pleasures of sin.

Rather, how necessary it is in our mental journey that we consecrate ourselves, our work hours and our play hours, to God, so that we may be led "beside the still waters," strengthened with all spiritual might, and our allegiance and loyalty to our Cause and our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, increased thereby!

If our Father in His great bounty enables us to visit larger fields, what an additional joy this may add to our storehouse of good! As we view the great ocean, the wide expanse of sky, the range of hill and valley, the great towering mountains, we may hear their united song of praise. Then we may rejoicingly sing, "Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves." We are led to see how all the works of God praise Him: and we may swell the chorus of love and praise!
