Holly Day or Holy Day?

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Holiday is made up of two words: holy and day. However, the holiness of this time is often replaced by a flurry of market activity. The day soon becomes more about ‘us’, or at worst ‘me’, and not about Him. It reminds me of what the Passover had become in Jesus’ day. “To those who sold doves he [Jesus] said, ‘Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” (John 2:16). This year let’s stop and put the holy back into the day.
