Don’t you just love Monday mornings?

A primary reason for the “Monday morning blues” is summed up concisely by a tweet from a successful entrepreneur who follows me on Twitter:

“In my opinion, what makes me happy is doing what I want, whenever I want, as much as I want.”

But when you have to get up Monday morning to go to work and start a week of doing things you may not want to do, no wonder people suffer from “Monday morning blues.”

It’s interesting that we profess to live for Christ but start our work-week cursing a new day He has given us. You can’t really be fully living for Christ when you curse the opportunities He provides.

Richard Whately once wrote, “It is generally true that all that is required to make men unmindful of what they owe God for any blessing is that they should receive that blessing often and regularly.”

Like every Monday morning.

How did you start your work week today? Was it with gratitude that God gave you another day of life and opportunity? Or were you cursing the morning while scrounging around for a clean coffee cup?

“This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it,” Psalm 118:24.

“And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father,” Colossians 3:17.
