Many long for the weekend to come. For some I don’t blame them.
When most people in the world work 6 days (and even 7 days) a week to barely put food on the table, most of us (North Americans) have the privilege of working only 5 days, namely Monday through Friday. Even at that, many of us complain or look forward to become an escapist. While this may be the reflection of those of the unregenerate, clearly Christians have higher standards in our attitudes and actions when it comes to our vocation. Since I recently blogged on this I don’t want to rehash it here.
I do see the need (even as necessities) for recreation, shopping, chores, entertainment and so on. But at the same time, the weekend is not all about me or you. If you’re interested in some biblical and theological reminder, read here.
