In this episode, Lucille wrestles with playing Scaleball on Sunday, while Liz goes overboard trying to make the clubhouse honoring to God.

In the Old Testament, God gave the Israelites a set of rules. Some of these rules, known as the Ten Commandments, can be found in Exodus 20:1-17. The fourth commandment instructed the Israelites not to do any work on the Sabbath (Saturday). Instead, they were supposed to use the day to honor God. After Jesus Christ died and rose again, those who trusted him began meeting on Sunday instead of Saturday (Acts 20:7). They would no longer be punished if they didn’t rest one day a week, but they still understood how important it was to set aside a time to honor and worship God.

Want to dig deeper and learn about finding rest with God? Read Psalm 23:1-2, Psalm 62:1, and Matthew 11:28.


Do you like to hang out with your friends on Sundays? That’s fine. How about asking your pastor if there’s a project you can tackle that will honor God? Maybe there’s work around the church, or maybe someone in the neighborhood needs help around the house. Use the time to be with friends AND honor God. Invite your parents and brothers and sisters along too!
