I got up this morning early to do some reading and some preparation for the day. Instead, I ended up reading about last night’s Golden State vs. OKC basketball game. The next thing I knew it was time to get moving and start my day officially. After all, I have church services this morning.
I would think that I am probably not along though. It is the one thing we all share in common. It is not parsed out based upon your age or race. You don’t get more if you are a man or a woman. We don’t get anymore in New Jersey than they do in Montreal.
I probably have wasted more time in my life than I would care to admit. “there is always more”, I foolishly tell myself. Yet, that is not always true. The parable in Luke 13 about the Fig Tree speaks to this. Eventually we all run out of time. There will be no more tomorrows.
Maybe today can be different. This can be the start of something great for me and for you. Let’s do all those things we keep putting off. Reading the bible cover to cover. Spending deep time in prayer. Serving. Caring. Loving.
Right after I get my coffee that is.
There will be time….later
