We Should Be Romantic About Mondays

We Should Be Romantic About Mondays

I have a confession to make. I’m likely outing myself as a nerd and I’ll have some explaining to do… but I love Mondays. Honestly, I get excited about them. I even spend Sunday afternoons preparing for my week while the family naps. I enjoy the weekend but I also look forward to Monday morning.

I know this is strange. Mondays aren’t typically anyone’s favorite day. After a nice weekend with family and friends, it’s hard to get up early and fire up that computer again. I don’t know anyone who would rather spend the morning sorting through emails than sleeping in.

But I’ve noticed a sad trend develop in our society. We spend five days a week driving towards the last two. We live for that moment when we punch out on Friday afternoon. We glorify the days of rest and demonize the five days actually meant to accomplish something. To break that down, we are speeding through 72% of our lives to get to the last 28%.

Don’t get me wrong. Rest is good, even biblical. God rested on the seventh day after creating the world. The Old Testament puts the Sabbath pretty high up on the Israelites’ priority list. Rest is a discipline often lacking in our connected world today. For that reason, we should soak up the weekends. We should sleep in, enjoy time with those we love, and set aside time for worship and reflection in the local church. This is good for both the body and soul.

But these days of rest aren’t more spiritual or critical than the other five. Your Sunday morning at church isn’t the holiest part of your week. In our love for the weekend, we forget something important. Work is a form of worship.

That’s why I love Mondays. I love having five days of productivity ahead of me and I want to make the most of every minute. It’s not just about earning a paycheck. It’s a chance to worship through my daily activities. I get to worship Christ through my interactions with coworkers, the way I approach my tasks, and through the results of my labor.

I’ll be honest, working for a missions organization, it’s easy to have this attitude. Materials I write are blasted to thousands of people considering a short-term mission trip in another part of the world. It’s not hard to get excited about that. But my work isn’t any more worshipful than that of an accountant, teacher, or marine biologist.

Just check out Paul’s encouragement to the Colossians – “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,giving thanks to God the Father through him (Col. 3:17).”

I love his use of the word “whatever.” Paul doesn’t classify some things we do as sacred and others as secular. He doesn’t draw a line down the middle of our lives. For Paul, all of it is sacred. Everything we do is a chance to honor Christ and make his name known, regardless of your field of study or work.

As Christians, we should find something romantic in Mondays. For us, work should be more than a necessary evil to help us pay the bills. It’s a chance to worship our God with an attitude of excellence and grace in our jobs.

Discuss: What aspect of your job or education allows you to uniquely worship Christ through your daily activities?
