Sent: A Month of Mission – Day 13
Business is a big problem in our culture. We pack every second of every day. It’s left us with more stress and missing out on spontaneous moments.
It reminds me of the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). What if the Samaritan had been too busy to stop for the injured man on the side of the road?
A lot of ministry takes place in the interruptions. The interruptions have great conversations, opportunities to help others, games, prayers, laughter, crying, and so much more. If, however, your life is so packed that you can’t be interrupted, you’ll miss those great opportunities.
It’s time to unpack…your life. Leave some free time in your schedule so when you come across someone on the side of the road, you can be the Samaritan or when your kids want to play, you can.
Today: Take a look at your schedule and, if you don’t already have some, start scheduling some margin, some open time.
In Christ’s Service,
