I've been thinking about how shortsighted I can be. 🤷 I can get so bogged down in schedules, appointments, and deadlines. Busyness can shorten our ability to see beyond the next few days or the next upcoming deadline. Do you sometimes find yourself like this?
When I feel like this, I try to think about time from God's perspective. God sits outside of time itself. He is not bound by time, space, or matter. They are like grains of sand in the palm of His metaphorical hand. He looks at the beginning of creation and the end of all things like a book. He can see the opening and the closing. He can even see past the edges of what is possible for us to even comprehend.
When we think of things from God's perspective, my daily chores, appointments, schedules, and to-do lists seem a little less massive and intrusive. In the light of eternity, it is amazing what matters and what doesn't.
I have an idea, what if we make a list of all we have to do today and then order them according to what matters in the scope of eternity? I wonder what will rise to the top? I wonder doesn't need to be on our list at all?
