5:73 – A Case of the Mondays
#faithbites #faithjourney Mondays
I don’t know about you, but today was definitely a Monday. I broke one of my favorite coffee mugs, my back was acting up, daylight savings time, and everyone seemed to be on their own tangents and quests today. It was just very strange day. A friend of mine said my post was the most Monday of posts.
We can call it a case of the Mondays or just say, “Stuff Happens”. I said to a friend that someone was being snippy with me and she reminded me that maybe the othe rperson has something going on. It was a great reminder as all of us have stuff going on, regardless sif it’s a case of the Mondays.
God tells us in Hebrews 10:24 – 25, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” He directs us to help each other and support them even if we don’t know what’s going on. They may act different than normal because of their stress.
God also tells us in Galatians 6:2-3 (NLT) to “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.” None of us are that important to ignore what is going on in others lives. We can’t assume they are being mean to be mean. We can’t see others intent. Love and know that stuff happens.
As we close, share God’s love, help others, and know whether it’s a case of the Mondays, someone being mean, or something else going on, respond in love.
- Knowing that stuff happens, how can you change how you respond to others?
- What can you do when you are havkng a case of the Mondays?
- How can your love of Christ change your perspective on others?
Lord Jesus, tonight we pray for understanding and help in how we respond to others. We don’t know what stuff is going on in their lives that may be adversely effecting them. Help us to show love in all things. Amen
