What Time Is It?

as I continued to process yesterday’s entry, it hit me, what about those “drivers” who leave their signals on? this creates misleading and quite often leads to frustration, two things we never want when sharing our faith with others. know your crowd, know your environment and know yourself!
words have power, so make sure He’s leading you to say something. “Preach the gospel at all times — If necessary, use words.” these are very wise words from St Francis of Assisi and a philosophy I live by. our lives should be a constant example so our words aren’t needed. make sure you’re [words] aren’t on, when they should be off.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭1-8‬ NIV)

  1. Another good one! Strangely, it made me think of “Little House on the Prairie” and the two characters Laura Ingalls and Nellie Oeslen. Nellie’s character was consistent in reminding others of her privilege (although it was earthly privilege, but it wouldn’t be any different if it was heavenly privilege), while Laura’s character was steadfast in demonstrating biblical principles without words. Both characters weren’t perfect, but as a child, I learned so much more from Laura than from Nellie. Even now, although older, I still respond to and respect those who demonstrate biblical principles with fewer words. If too many words are used, I simply feel small and defeated, because we are all at different places in our spiritual growth and like any good teacher, you have to know your student.
