The Seventh Day:
Seven Swans A-Swimming
We hear of seven swans a-swimming on the seventh day of Christmas — New Year’s Eve. Yet despite the number of people who are drawn to “polar bear plunges” around this date — the end of the last year and the start of a new year — I think it might be a little too cold to join those swans for a swim.
The seventh day isn’t just a day for swans to swim. The seventh day, according to the Bible’s story of creation, is a day of rest. After the year we’ve had… we may need a little renewing rest.
So while today isn’t officially the “sabbath day,” try to make this seventh day of Christmas, this last day of 2020, a sabbath day for you — a day of true rest. (Have to work today? Rest tomorrow! Carve out a special sabbath in this week.)
And remember, friends:
Our God is bigger than coronavirus.
Our vision is bigger than coronavirus, too.
We are people blessing people.
