What’s Most Important

Some words I’ve been considering . . .

Stresses in our lives come regardless of our circumstances. We must deal with them the best we can. But we should not let them get in the way of what is most important—and what is most important almost always involves the people around us. Often we assume that they must know how much we love them. But we should never assume; we should let them know. Wrote William Shakespeare, “They do not love that do not show their love.”

We will never regret the kind words spoken or the affection shown. Rather, our regrets will come if such things are omitted from our relationships with those who mean the most to us. Send that note to the friend you’ve been neglecting; give your child a hug; give your parents a hug; say “I love you” more; always express your thanks. Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.

. . . have led to some opportunities I’m taking.

What about you?

    Hi
    I had a lot to think about there, I love a good post that makes me look internally to see if i’m being/doing/giving the best of me…having such wonderful church leaders is a great inspiration to keep going and try harder, especially when it is focused on and around Jesus Christ.
