One of the issues that seems to affect many Christians is the inability to think Biblically. This seems to go hand in hand with our knowledge of the Bible. As an example, the world has Mother’s day, Father’s day, memorial day, Thanksgiving and Valentine’s day,  amongst others. But what do these celebrations have to do with Jesus and why would the Church recognize these?  You might say these are minor things, but then you find out that single people often feel they aren’t appreciated or recognized in the Church. Valentine’s day, Mother’s day and father’s day don’t recognize single people, and go along with worldly values where only certain people can have a ‘day’ named after them. We then have Pastor’s appreciation month, but I get no recognition as an IT professional. Now I don’t look for, or need recognition, and as Luke 17:10 says ‘So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’  So why would the Church go along with worldly things ? It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Mother’s day and Father’s day and Valentines day ensure that cards are bought, presents are bought, restaurants are filled, but Jesus is not glorified. Have we become friends with the world ? What does it mean to think biblically about such things.
