Saturdays are for Family

I only have enough time to share a very quick but very, very important lesson I have learned during my post-seminary ministry: Saturday is for family! No, I am not able to compromise this practice. Yes, I am 100% devoted to it. Saturdays are for me and my family, barring the most urgent and absolute emergencies. Anyone ministering really should pick a day for family, and protect it like he/she would protect the church. God smiles on such practice.

    I’m in total agreement. When I was a kid, serious Christians went to Sunday night church. But Sunday night is the last family night, what with football and dates and/or out with friends on Saturday nights. (If you’re kids are old enough) Sunday night is all that is left. We need to leave families alone during that time.

    Amen, RLP! Sometimes, I think the most spiritual thing we can do is nix a church service and dedicate that time to family, and when I’m taking my last breath in this world, I know what I’ll be wishing I did more of … and it probably won’t be attending more church services. It’ll be family. Right on.
