We all want to spend time with our family, but we’re so busy with everything else going on in our world, how do we do it?
How do we respond when so many others need/want our moments, hours and days, yet we long for more time with our husband? More time pouring into our children? Here are some points to ponder when you consider how yo will spend your days:
- Establish an eternal perspective. How will this decision effect eternity? If it won’t, then is it pressing right now or should I do something else?
- Remember when you say “yes” to someone, you’re saying “no” to someone else. Who should I be saying “no” to? Is this person in my priority order?
- Respond to each opportunity on the basis of how it will affect your ability to fulfill your current obligations. Will doing this make it more difficult to do what I have to get done today? Will doing this help me accomplish what is before me?
- Try to do only the right things for the right reasons at the right times in the right seasons.
Now, how will you spend TIME with your family this weekend? Perhaps you should start by asking yourself these four questions, then make decisions about what you will/should do!
Your family opportunities won’t be there forever! Grab them while you can!
