Fridays are always good days… the end of hectic weeks, the beginning of Sabbath rest… I love Fridays…
Some folks are Monday lovers… not me… it’s the start of a working week and although I like my job and love my colleagues, I usually can’t wait till the week is over.
God was very smart when He initiated the 7 day week back at creation. He worked all week, but then Sabbath came and the text says :
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
By the seventh day. God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy. because on it he rested. from all the work of creating that he had done
Am sure God did not need to rest, but He wanted to set that day apart. A day like no others, spend in communion with Him and others.
It’s amazing how refreshing a day of rest can be. A day different from other days. Away from the rhythm of the ‘normal’ life. What a gift He gave us!
It’s Friday and the day of rest is approaching….. I love Fridays!!
Have a great day of rest!
