Sabbaticus is a very peculiar disease. If you don’t have it, maybe you know someone who might have a severe case of it. The symptoms vary, but never interfere with the appetite. It never lasts for more than 24 hours.
No physician is ever called and it is very contagious. The attack comes on suddenly after a hearty breakfast on Sunday morning.
Symptoms are never felt on Saturday night. About 9 a.m. the attack comes on and last until about noon.
In the afternoon, the patient is much improved and is able to take a ride, visit friends, watch TV, work in the garden, mow the lawn or read the Sunday paper.
The patient eats a hearty supper, but the attack comes on again and lasts through the early evening. But come Monday morning, the patient is able to go to work as usual, or maybe go to the mall and shop several hours. This ailment is often fatal in the end – to the soul. The cure for this fatal disease is to return to God and His church. Measure not men by Sundays without regarding what they do all the next week.
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
