Will What Happens in Church this Sunday Really Make a Difference in Someone’s Monday?

On MONDAY some kid will . . .

Sleep through an alarm,
Ask for an iPhone,
Take a pop quiz,
Get invited to a party,
Try out for the team,
Break up.

On MONDAY some parent will . . .

Miss the carpool line,
Meet a neighbor,
Ground a teenager,
Forget a permission slip,
Start a new job,
Read a bedtime story.

MONDAY is when reality hits.
MONDAY is when Sunday is tested.
MONDAY is when faith has to work.
