Home is Where Life Makes Up Its Mind
This Covid home quarantine, what an occasion to set aside for life evaluation and regrouping. Isn’t it?
It’s downtime. You are forced to pull off the streets ... put your pace into neutral. A time to reflect and ask your self a few questions.
Allow me to suggest a few that can be worth your while:
1. Am I truly happy and fulfilled where I am now in
my own life?
2. Is the direction of my life taking me toward a place
of lasting purpose and significance?
3. Do I have a loving and supportive relationship with
my spouse, children, or loved ones?
4. What legacy will I leave to my family and the
world after I die?
5. In light of eternity, can I honestly say that I’m at the
center of God’s will in my life and making a
consistent investment in it for His glory and cause?
I challenge you: Open your eyes! Reflect deeply! Stop long enough to think! Listen! Excavate! Apply!
If you put this off, you could lose the emergency and urgency of the moment where we’re all in.
Dr. Chuck Swindoll says,
“Home is a lot of things ... but mainly it is the place where life makes up its mind.”
In Ecclesiastes, the wise king Solomon, offers this solid advice:
“Remember also your Creator ... before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, ‘I have no delight in them’ ; ... Remember Him before ... the spirit will return to God who gave it” (Ecclesiastes 12: 1, 6, 7)
