What do Noah, Abraham, David, and Judas all have in common? What came to my mind is that each was living normal life and suddenly a significant, unforeseen opportunity was presented to them. In response to that opportunity:
- Noah could have told the Lord he knew nothing of shipbuilding.
- David could have followed worldly wisdom and chosen not to fight Goliath.
- Abraham could have said he wouldn’t sacrifice his beloved son Isaac.
- Judas could have said he would follow Jesus and not betray Him.
A real measure of a man is when he is presented with a challenge. How does he respond? Your family and others are watching your response to the current world situation and possible disruption to your “entitlements.” Are you focused on self or others? Are you at peace and purposing to redeem the time?
My brothers use every minute. Invest in your family, love them, be at peace and full of praise for the Lord Jesus Who is worthy.
