To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NKJV)
Fully Present – Timing is Everything Series – Part 6
Abraham Heschel, a Jewish Rabbi, and theologian said, “The higher goal of spiritual living is not to amass a wealth of information, but to face sacred moments.”
The ultimate goal of time is presence.
We’re so busy and time poor, we’re running around here and there and collapsing in a heap at the end of the day. We work from dawn till dusk to make money to pay for things. And more things and more things. Things aren’t bad in and of themselves, but when the accumulation of things rules us? Well, I would call that an idol of sorts.
For some of us who cry “I’m busy all the time,” I would suggest we stop and ask ourselves, “What with? What for? To what end?”
