Good Friday

Is it called Good Friday because it is good to have a day off? Fridays are always anticipated but when it is Friday and a holiday we have double reason to celebrate. Go ahead; enjoy the time with family and friends. Try to put your work aside. But don’t let the day end without truly reflecting on why it is Good Friday.

In Germany they call this day mourning Friday. Jesus was crucified, so the disciples mourned. But I prefer calling it good because the disciples morning only lasted till Sunday when Jesus defeating death by rising from the dead. It is good for all who believe because forgiveness and salvation is theirs. So it is the day of the greatest good. The day one man sacrificed it all for the good of all mankind.

Go out and have a good day.
