On Monday are you thinking about Sunday?
My Monday revolves around Sunday. I have meetings all day where we evaluate Sunday, share wins, and consider what we could have done differently. Then we look to the next Sunday, making adjustments based on our evaluations and confirming everything is covered.
My Monday is all about Sunday.
But if I’m honest, I don’t always bring my Sunday into my Monday.
Sure, I talk about what I did and what I’m going to do, but I don’t really talk about what God did and what I hope God continues to do. I talk about Sunday, but Sunday doesn’t always impact my heart on Monday and my teammates probably wouldn’t tell you they know I’ve been in the presence of Christ.
I need to be more intentional about bringing my Sunday into my Monday. How about you? On Monday, can the people you work with tell you’ve been in the presence of God and with the family of God? Can your kids tell it’s a little easier for you this week to choose compassion and patience? Is there just “something different” about you that people can see in your actions and hear in your words?
Today, in light of Sunday, I’d challenge you to do two things:
- Act. Like Shannon mentioned yesterday as we wrapped up our series from the Book of Jonah, extend God’s grace to someone around you. As Christ was generously graceful to you, be just as generous with your compassion, love, and grace.
- Prepare. Listen to the songs we’ll be singing this upcoming Sunday, May 21. Begin to prepare yourself for what God is going to do when we gather again as His bride.
Jesus said, “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples” (John 13:35). I hope on Mondays people know us as a church who loves well.
