WHEW!!!! It has been hot. I can’t believe we are in August! Before we know it, we will be talking turkey and celebrating the birth of our salvation. Time waits for no one. It can just slip through your hands and you are left wondering where did it go?
We say “I did not get anything accomplished today.” Let’s just sit on that for a minute. So the dishes are still in the sink, the floor didn’t get mopped, and you can write your initials in the dust on the table. And you are frustrated with yourself. You spent time with Jesus, and then poof, the day was gone.
Well, did you spend time with a friend who is going through a difficult time, color with your child or grandchild, encourage your son or daughter to keep trying whatever they may be doing and let them know they are not a failure? Maybe you just sat down with your spouse after supper and caught up with the day and each other. Or some friends called to get together and you went.
Well you know what, you accomplished a lot.
YOU invested into the lives of others and that time is priceless – it multiplies in their lives and yours. Besides, ladies, we all know those dishes will still be there when we get back to them. But the smiles, laughter, and encouragement would have passed by if we had not stopped and left our to-do list to another day. Which one do you think Jesus would do?
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.
Proverbs 16:9 NLT
How will you choose to spend your time today?
