While you have the LIGHT, trust in the LIGHT so that you may become men of light.
~John 12:36, NEB
Jesus spent approximately three years with His disciples and that is not very long. Four times in three chapters, He speaks to them about the narrowness of this window. Time is precious and it is also very illusive. We must be good stewards of time. Time and opportunities have a tendency of getting away from us. There are many things that we must do within a certain time frame; serve in the military is one but there are others. Don’t waste time! It is as sinful to waste time as it is talent or money. Take advantage of present opts–don’t let the window close without getting in. Every missed opt will create regret and regret is not a good companion to grow old with. Be kind to one another; wash their feet while you have the opportunity. Jesus was crucified shortly after this woman washed His feet.
Another full day and another call for prayer. LORD willing, I will be conducting the COLS for Shohn’s grandfather today at 1:00. Staff meeting this morning at 9:00. Sounds big church doesn’t it: actually, there are only three of us and two for today’s meeting. Prayer meeting tonight at 6:30.
Washing other feet or NOT: Sometimes old men try to be cute and like little children, they say the “darndest things”. I know two who did that yesterday after M.D.’s service. Most of the time they are trying to be funny and the best thing to do is to overlook them. With a little effort, we could say something encouraging and uplifting. Hey, I was one of the two and I can assure you there was no malice in my heart but what I said did not come out right so I went back and apologized. I was picking at someone for being reserved but I told her when I apologized that I wish I were like her. She never gets in trouble for talking too much.
Thanks for reading the blog and I hope you have a great day!
