I’m reading a really interesting book right now. It’s called Weird by pastor of LifeChurch.TV, Craig Groeschel. He shares a story about a dad who never intended to take his kids for granted. He realized his time with them would run out unless he was intentional about slowing down and savoring time with them.
He calculated he had 143 Saturdays left with his oldest daughter before she graduated from high school. He filled a jar with 143 marbles and each Saturday he pulled one out. It was inevitable that time would run out, but at least this way he got to decide where his time went.
God gives us a gift each day. How are you making the most of today?
