We measure ourselves by it constantly. We rush from here to there, as a song from the early 1980’s says…”everybody’s working for the weekend” – (Loverboy, 1981) We gauge where we can spend our life by the day of the week and the hour of the day. We are not made to measure our lives by the minutes, hours, days, weeks and years. More important than time are relationships. Focus more on who we spend our time with, what we are doing with our community of people. The things we do that help others who are in need are the most valuable. Instead of measuring how long we did something or how much time we saved we should start measuring ourselves by asking two questions. Who have I helped today? Who has helped me today? As always ask the Lord to help with the answers in prayer. May God’s wisdom and grace be with you.
“As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows it over and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.”
