“When Pharaoh finally let the people go, God did not lead them along the main road that runs through Philistine territory, even though that was the shortest route to the Promised Land. God said, “If the people are faced with a battle, they might change their minds and return to Egypt …” – Exodus 13:17-18
Our generation is obsessed with speed: Fast Browsing, Cars, Jets, Foods and even Drive-through Prayer booths. It is not just enough to get there, one must beat time!
Time-wasting is despicable. But life is not just about saving minutes. In heaven’s economy, CHRONOS, clock time, is not as critical as KAIROS ~ opportuned time; which help to grow us to be blessings to people around us. Ignoring our Kairos moments to ‘save time’ is being penny wise but pound foolish.
Atimes the Lord may_ _have us trade our minutes to make us a blessing. For our time on earth is only worthwhile if used to invest in eternity. A SHORT cut may not always be the BEST cut!_
