Annette Olsen became frustrated after driving her son to an empty soccer field for the second week in a row. She said to her son, “Please tell your coach that we keep coming for practice, but no one is ever here.”
Her son rolled his eyes and replied, “He will just tell me the same thing that he did before.” His mom asked, “Which was?” Within a moment her son answered, “He said practice is now on Tuesdays, not Mondays.” (Adapted from Reader’s Digest, March 2016)
While it might be a humor illustration of how easy it might be to forget a day, we also remember some days as a priority. Days such as birthdays, anniversaries, sporting events, and family activities take priority in our lives. While various days are a priority, do we make Sunday or Wednesday a priority?
We are familiar with the passage in Hebrews 10.24-25, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
The Day the Hebrews writer is referring to is the great judgement day. Have you considered that Day when you are prioritizing the Days ahead? As we sometime sing, “There’s a great day coming…” Are you ready?
