What Matters The MOST?


The newest YouTube craze: A woman, when referring to a fire in her apartment saying, 

"Ain't nobody got time for that!"And it's true! Sometimes.

Life is a juggling acts.  BUT I am learning there are a few things you NEED to make time for.The best use of life is love. Life without love is really worthless. Love cannot be learned isolation. So what does that mean?  We shouldn't talk about finding time for people in our lives, that's like saying relationships are just a part of our lives along with other tasks, but really relationships are what life is all about.
SO what do we need to do? 
Love God. Love People.
The point of life is learning to love people, even the smelly, selfish, hard to talk to, negative, prettier than you,  rude, and busy people.God has placed you where you for a reason. WHEREVER YOU ARE! EVEN if you don't want to be there. 
In our final moments we don't say "bring me my watch, graded papers, or diploma." You want people to surround you.  The best way to spell love is T-I-M-E, spending time and focused attention in relationships is what 
matters.


I literally don't remember the topic of my research paper sophomore year of HS, but I do remember how critically important my relationship was with my basketball team & best friend Rachael.  I wouldn't be the same person without those them. 



***It's not easy with deadlines, distractions, kids, bosses, co-workers, hw, and the wold weighing on your shoulders, But what I have found is:  As I am trying to juggle, Work, Friends, Family, Sleep,Planning, etc.  I evaluate what matters most, most likely when I do this I rule out reading the article for work and rule in checking in on a friend or coworker.   (Even in Korea, where the customs are so different and I can't talk to most people on the streets.  I do what I can.)
"Let LOVE be your greatest aim." Gal. 3:26
