Christian French Chef Francis Foucachon said,
“By inviting others to share your Sabbath meal, you are combining several aspects of what the Sabbath calls you to do: participate in acts of mercy, fellowship with believers and discuss the things of God.
“Be pro-active. Get ready for the Sabbath instead of just letting it happen. The Lord’s Day is the most important day of the week! We need to prepare for it as such. Can you imagine having a wedding reception that was thrown together at the last minute? Everyone would think you didn’t care very much about the guests. And it would show.
“This might mean not having guests over on Saturday night. For a Sunday Sabbath celebration, the house has to be in order. When you go to bed on Saturday night, the table should be set, the house should be clean, and the entré or the dessert can be finished. The food should be prepared enough so that you are not in the kitchen while your guests are there.”
