Does your week go something like this?
First things first... and last.
"Begin the first day in holy worship;
don't do any regular work on that day.
Conclude the seventh day in holy worship;
don't do any regular work on that day."
--- Numbers 28:18,25 (The Message version)
"On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.
...On the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work."
--- Numbers 28:18,25 (New International Version)
Is this where we got Saturday and Sunday as "week-ends"? For the ancient Israelites, one day was actually their week-end and the other the week-start. Still, I
usually just see both as rest days at the end of my week, if my work even ended at all.
Do we do this? Worship God first, and last too, for the week? How about for the day? Perhaps if we're feeling particularly pious (or need something really bad), this could be how we start and end our year...
Let's remember our priorities. First Person first... and last.... and all throughout our days.
