What you put your time (talent/$) into, shows your priorities.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
This has been a huge discussion in our house as we try and balance between baby, marriage, work, alone time, etc. How does this all fit together? Or does it? As we look at our ever-increasing schedules we need to stop and ask ourselves a few things….
Is there something that I need to give up? What am I doing that I can take out? If I say that I’m too busy to invest in lives, then I need to re-prioritize my life. Just think if the person who invested in you (parent/friend/neighbor) would’ve said that they were too busy….where would you be?
Are we putting our time into things that matter (eternally)? – relationship with Jesus. Our personal relationship with Jesus, our family’s and others.
What’s one thing that you will cut out of your schedule? Pray about it. God will show you ways to include Him in the daily tasks of life as well as what to cut. Don’t do 1 thing this week – that sounds like a great challenge doesn’t it! – and invest in someone instead.
For some accountability, Leave a comment and let us know what you’re taking out of your schedule.
