The Importance of This Time in Our Lives

There is always something to learn in life about ourselves or about others in both good and bad times. The book of Ecclesiastes reminds us there is a time and a season for everything.  (See Ecclesiastes 3:1.) Here are a few of my observations and reminders from this amazing, but challrenging season.

  • The importance of biological family
  • The importance of our church family
  • The importance of friends and neighbors
  • The importance of our worldwide community
  • The importance of work
  • The importance of the medical community
  • The importance of government
  • The importance of business
  • The importance of personal savings
  • The importance of becoming less selfish
  • The importance of prayer
  • The importance of suffering
  • The importance of trusting God in all things

I am sure that you can think of many more areas of importance in which you have a renewed appreciation for. This is a time to test our hearts and our ability to be thankful. This is also a time we can identify selfishness within ourselves.

“Father, help us to see You in this season and to not miss what You are desiring to speak to each of us. We remind ourselves of Your word which says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
