Where did Monday come from?

People get up on Monday and think it is the worst day of the week.  After hearing what some people say about Monday you would think that Monday was some kind of curse God had placed in mankind.  Actually it works like this,

Sunday is named after the Sun.  Monday is named after the moon.

That's it.

Some people believe that Monday is the first day of the week.  It is the first day of the work week but that title belongs to Sunday.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

How was your first day of the week?  Mine was awesome.  Church was awesome.  Seeing God move in people's lives was awesome.  Can you tell that I like the word, "awesome"?

Paul tells us in Philippians to rejoice, even on Mondays.  If you don't know, Phillipians is one of me favorite books is the Bible .  I quote it often.  In this passage Paul tells us to rejoice on Mondays.  Well not specifically, but you get the point.  Can this make a difference?  You bet it can.

I know that going back to work is a tough day after having a great weekend.  But rejoice!
 
Psalm 118:24This is the day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Star rejoicing and watch your Monday blues go away!

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, You made today and I rejoice for this gift you have given me.  AMEN
