"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18
It is Monday here and many woke up this morning complaining because of it. Monday is the "back to the grind stone day". It is probably the most hated day of the week because for most it means having to go back to work- their weekend is over, no more "fun and games", no more spending their time doing what they want to do.
Let's get refocused this morning. Instead of complaining because it is Monday be thankful. Thank the Lord you have a job. So many people are unemployed and don't know how they are going to provide for their families. Be thankful that you have the strength and health to go to a job. Let's also get refocused and remember that life is not one big "weekend". Be thankful for the times of rest and enjoyment that the weekend brings. But the weekend is only two days and the rest of the week consist of five. There is a lesson that we can learn from that. Life consist more of work and responsibility, duty and commitment than it does of rest, relaxation and fun. How nice it would be if life was one big weekend, but it isn't.
The point I am trying to make this morning is-- just be thankful! Be thankful for what you have and what you can do. Be thankful for the times of labor. Be thankful for the times of rest. Be thankful for the weekend and be thankful for the week. Life consist of both and both play an important part in our lives. They each help to make us into the people that the Lord desires for us to be. He gives us both. So be thankful for both and enjoy both by doing whatever you do as unto Him.
Have a great day. Be thankful for Mondays and the whole week as well as the weekends.
