Mondays are my day off. It’s my sabbath. It’s my time to recharge, detach, become renewed, and appreciate God. Most of us have this on Sundays – but for a pastor, Sunday is no sabbath.
So I came into Starbucks this afternoon for a few minutes – mostly just to do some online bill pay stuff and have a drink. It’s enjoyable here, you know. 😀
When I walked in I saw my friend David Foster. He’s one of the pastors at Dayspring Community Church here in Auburn. We spoke briefly, and then continued about our personal business. About four minutes later I saw an email from David Foster, sent three minutes earlier. It simply read, “Sup dawg?”
I looked at him and said, “Did you JUST email me?”
He smiled and said, “Yep.”
Naturally, I laughed.
But then he continued, “The real question is why are you checking your work email on a Monday? Come on man, detach.”
Remember the Sabbath isn’t just about not working – its about what happens to us when we stop.
