Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10
I look around my house and see so many things that need to be done. Unfinished projects to unstarted ones. Each are necessary, and some are more important than others. Like most families, we either have the time and no money, or have the money but no time. Honestly, our problem is more the former. No matter what the project and resources, there always seems to be an unwelcomed issue that rears its ugly head. A roof leak, furnace breaks down, air conditioner compressor fails, or the flux capacitor freezes up on the time machine. Just yesterday Cindy said, “I just need time to stop so I can get caught up.” We have all felt this way from time to time.
We cannot stop time. However, we know how to spend it, lose it, waste it, and pass it. Sadly, it takes a lifetime for us to learn how to take time. We cannot take more time than each day allows, but I believe ‘taking time’ is meant to make the best use of the time we have been given.
I plan to invest the time I have on the things and people that matter the most to me. What is important to you? For me, aside from my relationship with Christ, it is my wife, kids, and grand baby. Investing in these people the things which are eternal is my goal.
“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.Deuteronomy 6:7
