Blessed is the man that does this, and the son of man that lays hold on it; that keeps the sabbath from polluting it…
A little boy was on a visit to his uncle, and when the morning of the Lord's Day came, the uncle said, "Come, my man, you and I will go out and fish awhile! "Uncle," answered the boy, very gravely and somewhat .... puzzled, does God require us to fish here on Sunday at our house He doesnt allow us to do it." The fishing excursion was given up, and good came of the child's pointed sermon.
