Maybe you’ve heard of Special Agent Jethro Gibbs in the series NCIS.
He is known for his rules which he has complied over the years to help navigate his life.
His “Rule #11” is: When the job is done, walk away.
In some ways, that is what Sunday is. Sunday is the day when we walk away from it all.
All week long you’ve been swimming in a sea of drama. You’ve done some things well and you’ve done some things not so well.
You’ve tried, failed, tried again and failed again.
You’ve been afraid, angry, sad, and maybe even a little insane-ish.
You’ve laughed and you’ve cried, smiled and frowned.
It’s done. Finished. Over.
It’s now Sunday…time to walk away.
There’s one word for it, it’s called: Worship.
Worship = getting your eyes off you and your circumstances, and getting your eyes off others and their circumstance and lifting your eyes above it all to the sublime and superlative.
Worship = getting your eyes off the here and now and looking unto the eternal and infinite.
Worship = rebooting, refocusing, and re-calibrating your life by jettisoning the trivial and temporary and grounding your life in the sacred and transcendent.
Worship = laying it all down and walking away from the drama and walking towards the glorious Light…
The ONE THING for today: There’s got to be a day when it is all over and you can start afresh and anew. That day is called Sunday for it is the day, above all days, that we do more than just live…we worship.
