Do you have time to serve the Lord?

A Short Speech about Valuing Time

She looks as wiped out as I feel when i am swamped!

She looks as wiped out as I feel when i am swamped!

This is a repeat of a column I wrote in August of 2012. But this week, I needed to remind myself of the truth in it. Perhaps someone else needs the same reminder.

I found this quote which is attributed to Bryan Dyson – ex CEO of Coca Cola. I love his metaphorical take on placing value on various parts of our lives.

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. They are Work, Family, Health, Friends, and Spirit; and you’re keeping all of these in the air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends, and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.

Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends, and have proper rest.

Value has a value only if its value is valued.”

As we begin a new week, I am hoping to focus on balance and perspective. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. I pray I keep that at the core of all I do, say, and think this week.
