Oh, holy Monday, come to me,
From worlds of waste to time redeemed!
Of you the slackers seek to be free,
First day of labor ill esteemed;
In you, renewed solemnity
To realize the dreams I’ve dreamed.

If I were an employer interviewing potential employees, one of my questions, to get a really good feel for a person’s attitude toward work, woulkd be, “How do you feel about Mondays?” I’d check a candidate’s Facebook comments about Mondays, too. I doubt I’d hire someone who posted that they live for the weekends.
And what about the Heavenly Employer who has put his people on the earth to glorify him? Seems reasonable that the God who recorded Psalm 118:24 isn’t so happy with people who think that Mondays are bad and spout TGIF sentiments right and left. Monday murmurers give a bad witness to outsiders.
Isaac Watts wrote:
This is the day the Lord hath made;
He calls the hours His own;
Let Heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.
I’ve written before about how we feel about Mondays.
The bottom line: The resurrection Sunday makes every day, including every Monday, holy and glad.
