Good morning everyone,
Ecclesiastes 3:1-3 tells us that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build. What season of life do you find yourself in? Whatever season it is, He invites you to share it with Him! See, He made you so that you would be dependant on Him. The context of Ecclesiastes really goes on to say that it is all for nothing unless it is done for the Lord. Everything that you are associated with in the physical sense has a very limited life expectancy, including yourself. Over and over again I hear people say toward the end of their lives they wish that they had done things differently. Life is humbling and as we near the end of our physical existence, we begin to see life in a whole different context. Sports use to be my life and to go to a sporting event seem to be so exhilarating. Those moments of exhilaration were so short lived and followed by bouts of let down. As I age, relationships seem to have so much deeper meaning and my lack of relationships seems as though I've lost out! If you gain the whole world and you lose your soul, what have you really gained? When you spend time with your loved ones, are you really giving them your attention? Let me encourage you to ask God to show you what is really important. Time, while you are here, is the only asset that you can control how you spend it. He wants first dibs so that He can change your heart so that you will see how He wants you to spend your days.
Your brother in Christ,
