Here in Tennessee we are one week away from the start of the school year. It’s a hectic time for families, students, churches, staff, and volunteers as we all scramble to make our last minute preparations for the upcoming semester. But no matter who you are, or what you do, don’t forget to take a moment to slow down and remember: being too busy to recognize Who are we are doing this all for makes our work mean nothing.
Psalm 62:5 says:
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
Take a moment every now and then (daily, if you can) to just refocus and remember that we are doing this for God’s glory and name. If we get so busy we forget that, then it all is for naught. (I made the image above into a wallpaper. Feel free to use it.)
