This weekend, I met with several friends to talk about our walks with Jesus.
The last man that spoke, after listening to everyone else, said he was going to focus on two themes mentioned in many of our talks.
1) Live in the Now / Take time for the Now moments
2) Love the middle / give extra effort for other people
I have thought about these two principals a lot since our meeting and had good conversation with my wife. They nicely frame what I have been thinking about this week (Being accountable with my time, being content and maintaining a solid foundation).
Living in the now: Matthew 6:34 (NIV)
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Love the middle: 1 Corinthians 16:14 (NIV)
14 Do everything in love.
This week, my prayer is to keep these two principals “real time” in my thoughts and actions. I am looking forward to the week.
