“Lu, Coddy wants to get baptized.” Upon further investigation, he just didn’t want to get baptized he wanted to pray and make Jesus his Savior.
Ummm, you got a minute? Actually, I didn’t. I had 30 plus people in a circle waiting for me: Waiting for me, the director of our family theater show at Shepherd of the Hills Church, to start our team meeting, show, and prayer time.
I had a decision to make. I looked at the team waiting for me and in that moment it seemed like an eternity—a moment that would turn into a decision for eternity—I decided that the team could wait.
And in the back of our room with Coddy and his two friends that loved him, we held hands and he prayed that life-changing prayer—a decision expressed through prayer that caused angels to sing in heaven.
This got me thinking. How many times are we not putting aside good stuff for the better stuff?
“Mom, you got a minute?”
Are we willing to put aside whatever seems pressing at the time, put it aside and make time for the people who deserve it the most?
Ummm, you got a minute? As we go through our day we need to keep the best things at the top of our priority list, and not let the pressures of life pull us away from what matters most in this world, and especially the people that matter most.
Put the people that matter most at the top of your priority list, you’ll be glad you did.
