Holy Day or Trash Day

My son told me of an outstanding preacher who calls the summer "Holidays," "Trash Day's" meaning that as far as really making these days count for the Lord, is like trying to climb Mt. Everest wearing roller skates. As far as serving God is concerned, the days are throw aways.

Few would deny truth of Mr. Maxwell's description.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe said, "Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least."

A glance or an in depth inspection will arrive at the same conclusion; our generation has it backwards. To aptly describe our modern mind set we would be compelled to write: "Things which matter least must never be sacrificed at the mercy of things which matter most."

The prevailing attitude "I must feel better after an encounter with God" leaves off the sense of a deeper need, or God forbid that you see God as did Isaiah so high and lifted up that you cry out woe is me for I am a person of uncleanness etc.

Draw a line down the middle of a blank page and list two words: Above on one side; Below on the other. Or Matter Most on one side on the other side Matter Least. Let this verse be your guide, Colossians 3:1 "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God."
