Two Important Days

On the first day of the week
we came together to break bread.
                   —Acts 20:7

Have you noticed that an increasing number of calendars, especially the week-at-a-glance genre, start the week with Monday rather than Sunday?

God gave preeminence to two days of the week—the first and the last. The last was to be a day of rest for his covenant people of the Old Testament. The first was to be a day of remembrance for his covenant people of the New Testament.

Today many spend Saturday in carousing and dissipation, and Sunday sleeping off the carousing and dissipation of Saturday.

Don’t allow overindulgence to hijack your schedule. Spend some time on Saturday preparing for Sunday, and some time on Sunday remembering Jesus.

Keep things of first importance first.
