National Handshake Day – I know in the Baptist faith we extended the right hand christian handshake. We use a handshake as a way of greeting someone. Some clubs and organizations have special handshakes. Did you know the the Bible tells us to greet each other with a Holy Kiss. #handshake #NationalHandShakeDay
National Handshake Day
This holiday, National Handshake Day, celebrated the last Thursday of June each year. I am not sure when this holiday was started either.
Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you.Romans 16:16
Greet one another with a holy kiss.2 Corinthians 13:12
Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.1 Thessalonians 5:26
All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.1 Corinthians 16:20
As you can see, it tells us to greet with a holy kiss several times in the Bible. So make sure we greet our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ with a holy greeting.
At one time a mans handshake was his word. It was a very firm hand shake.
One of the deacons at a church I attened, members would kid him. He has big hands and a strong firm shake. Plus, he owns a tractor repair and supply store. We tell him, with that grip you can undo lug nut off a tractor tire with his bare hands.
- A firm grip reflects a confident personality.
- Used for Greetings
- A floppy handshake reveals a shy one.
- Used as a binding agreement.
- It is believed to have been practiced since at least the 2nd century B.C.
- Used to congratulate someone.
