I am sure you have heard of hump day (aka Wednesday which is the hump or middle of the week), but jump day?
Yep, it is a thing and it is world jump day today.
At first, I thought it could be clever marketing for businesses that sell bounce houses or tickets to trampoline parks, but it got me thinking.
What excites you?
What causes your heart to skip a beat or you to have a bounce in your step?
We should be so in love with Jesus that every day we just want to jump with joy to share our faith.
Ok, maybe we should not literally jump around as that could make us look weird, but choosing joy and smiling surely can make a difference for those around you.
Now, I don’t think I quite agree with any of the global warming awareness that goes along with this day, but we certainly all can have the goal of warming someone’s heart each and every day. And when we do, we will…
Rejoice in the day and leap for joy. Luke 6.23 paraphrase
*“The concept (of world jump day) was promoted by German artist, Torsten Lauschmann, and the first World Jump Day was slotted for July 20, 2006. He claimed that 600 million people in the Western Hemisphere were going to jump at the same time. This proposal was actually a satirical art installation, but it reminded people about the effects of global warming.”
FYI: “(The) earth weighs 100 trillion trillion pounds, and the average weight of a human is 137 pounds, which multiplied by 600 million equals 8,220 million pounds. Working out the pound-force of that figure involves a complicated formula, but rest assured that 600 million people jumping simultaneously (if anyone could organize the event) would make no difference to Earth’s orbit.” (https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/world-jump-day/)
