Becky said, “God is using this time to bring in those who will sit at His banqueting table. And He’s using us to get all the invites out.”
What a great point that is. Of course, God wants us to study His Word, and learn it; but, I think sometimes we get so bogged down in the specifics of the future that we forget we still have a very important mission to accomplish in the here and now.
From the post:
When I was little I remember waiting . . . a lot. I remember waiting for my mom when we went shopping. I remember waiting for my birthday, which was hard. I mean, my sister had a birthday, and then four days later, my brother had a birthday. Mine? I had to wait another seven-plus months. Then there was Christmas. As soon as it was over, I remember waiting for the next one. I wanted one of those count-down calendars in the worst way. Anything to make the time seem like it was going.
Oh, and then there were the trips. We took a lot of car trips as a family. And I was one to ask with some frequency, are we there yet? I took up map reading as a way to answer my own question because I could tell, my parents were getting tired of it.
