Part of the problem is that we Americans are very spoiled and even though we take weekends off for granted, many people around the world don't have such a luxury. Even in our own nation in years gone by, most only got the Sabbath, if that, off from their work. Perhaps being thankful for what we have would be a good start and the best way to start that is with God. You see, God is our Creator, made us in His image, and wants us to live for Him and by His rules. That's what the Ten Commandments are all about and it has been proven time and time again that those rules help keep society orderly as well as obeying God. When we get spoiled and we have things easy, well, it's easy to just expect more and more and we complain when we don't get what we perceive we should have. But with God in our life, we learn perseverance and then patience and we learn thankfulness instead of endless demands for more.
So, with Monday now upon us, lets look at our glass as being quite full instead of empty and if we have the Holy Spirit in our hearts which hopefully was refreshed fully yesterday, we might just find that our cup is running over and that means we have excess Spirit to spread to all of those with whom we come in contact. That should make us smile and it's infectious when we do and then the return to a normal workweek can become a joy instead of a ball and chain. Be glad, be thankful and let the love of God motivate us to go onward and upward throughout the week. It might be a surprise at just how far that might take us. Now get going, we have things to get done and the weekend, well, the next one will be here before we know it and being busy and productive makes the week roll by faster. Have a great and blessed day.
