This morning I am trying to remove the cold hard depressing realization that the weekend is over and the work week has returned from the front of my mind. Yes, as depressing as that thought is, I am forcing myself this morning to look for the wonderful things that exist in this curse we call work. Benefits the extend beyond funding the weekend.
So, as we head off for a week of cubicle warfare, I am cementing the power of the time away from work in my brain, and on of those things in the acknowledgment of the amount of grace and blessings that my life is bathed in. And so, here is where my mind goes as I head off to the ‘work-a-day’ world. I look towards the instruction the Christ gave his disciples, as he sent them out on a mission.
8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give. Matthew 10:8
No, I will not be healing the sick, raising the dead or messing with lepers or demons today, but I have received freely, and so, I will attempt to give in that same way. Well who knows, maybe that will help someone who feels like a leper or is dealing with demons, or feels dead as they live or is broken.
hm.. that’s pretty good motivation for the day.
