Here are a couple things I’m thinking about today…
1. TIME FLIES.
It seemed like just yesterday when my little sister was my “little” sister. But the truth is, today she graduated from high school – she is not little anymore.
With that said, I have never been more aware of how quickly the days, weeks, months and years pass by. It forces me to ask myself the question…
Am I wasting my time or am I stewarding my days wisely?
2. BEING A CRITIC IS NOT ADMIRABLE.
It is so easy to criticize others – to point out deficiencies in their character, issues with their style, shortcomings in their theology and frustrations with their personality.
But critics are just no fun to be around.
And so with that in mind, to the best of my ability, I desire to rid myself of my critical nature. Especially as it relates to criticizing other people who are doing the best they can with what they know. The following question will keep my criticism levels in check…
What do I spend the majority of my day doing? Criticizing or encouraging?
