Dear Fred

My current job is fixing to end. I have interviewed and been offered a job but I will have to work every Sunday. Should I give up my Sundays for a job?

Fred's Response

Scripture says, “forsake not the assembling of yourselves together” not “forsake not the going on Sunday.” But if you think working on Sunday would contribute to your not being the person you want to be I would hesitate to take the job. Would it deteriorate your relationship with the family? How urgent is your finding a job? Are there other alternatives? Are you grabbing the first one that comes along and not exploring other possibilities?
