5 Minute Friday - Relevant


I stumbled upon this 5-minute challenge and thought I'd give it a go today.
If you're interested, be sure to visit here.


Relevant

Pertinant, related in an important way to the matter at hand.

What IS the matter at hand?  What IS important today?

Is it advancement in math?  No.  It is the character showed while studying the math.

Is it the number of memory verses mastered?  No.  It is the heart working on the verses.

Is it the perfectly appointed home?  No.  It is stewardship over what we have topped with an atmosphere of love.

Relevant  is Christ, our family, their hearts, and the home in which we live.  Relevant is making this a nice place to cultivate hearts, those of our children, those of ourselves.

News?  Irrelevant.  Keeping up with the Jones'?  Irrelevant.  Hollywood?  Irrelevant.

Love?  Relevant.  Character?  Relevant.  Our marriage?  Relevant.  Raising these children to the glory of God?  Relevant.

Interrupting this 5-minute challenge because Lando woke up and came down stairs for a morning hug?

RELEVANT!
