Today is Friday, January 10th, 2020; Karen's Korner #4129
Something I received this morning as an inspirational thought by Anne Graham Lotz. Timely as we move into the weekend.
A Day Set Apart
"If you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lords' holy day honorable....then you will find your joy in the Lord."
~ Isaiah 59:13 - 14 NIV
"In the beginning by His own example, God patterned our week to include not only the discipline of work but also one day of every seven that would be 'set apart'; different from the other six days.
"For a majority of people today, there is very little difference between the way they keep Sunday and the way they keep Saturday. Sunday has become more of a holiday than a holy day. Sunday was not designed just so we could sleep late, meet friends for brunch, go shopping to take advantage of weekend sales, do extra yard work or house work, attend the latest movie, or watch the playoff game on TV. Sunday should be not only for physical rest and restoration but for spiritual refreshment and expression of our devotion to God.
"Has the day that is supposed to be set apart, fallen apart? Consider what you can do to keep Sunday special -- different from the other six days of the week."
