“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.”
Psalm 90:12 (NIV)
The words of this song have convicted me lately. Pursuing the world is a problem I struggle with. I know that all my children and grandchildren require of me is time. Not money. Not vacations. Not gifts. Just time with me. Yet often I am so busy that I fail to even see the disappointment in their eyes when I say “maybe later”.
How many of us say those words every day? Maybe later I will write that letter. Maybe later I will sit on the floor and play hot wheels with a grandchild. Maybe later I will call that woman who lost her husband last week. Maybe later I will tell my husband what a great job I think he is doing.
None of us are promised later. James 4:13-16 is a great reminder about the need to accomplish things today. We can’t succeed in building up God’s Kingdom here on earth when we are busy saying “maybe later”.
So dear friend — what will you do today to build the house of your dreams in your own life?
