Our most ambitious quest in this life should be to seek more intimacy with God, spouses, children and friends. The only way to know someone more intimately is to spend more time with them. Neglecting those precious loved ones can be harmful to our most valuable relationships. We are capable of poisoning our future with loved ones by simply mishandling the present. I think of the marriages lost, the children who act out because they feel ignored and abandoned, the friend who falls by the wayside because we forgot to call.
I pray that today my family feels cherished by me. I purpose in my heart to let them know that they matter...to God, to me, to the world. And Lord, I lift up each of my readers and pray that they each know how much they matter to you! You are a good and faithful Father who never leaves or forsakes us!
