This past Sunday I heard a sermon from a series called “Breathing Room“ which resonated across all lines, religious or not. Our message was about how we use our time.
We don’t really think about the fact that our time/life has a limited number of hours but like it or not, it does. (we just don’t know how many hours) For example, if we have an important work deadline, we prioritize and organize our time so that the most important things are done rather than filling the hours with unimportant tasks. Our takeaway quote…
“Remembering that our time is limited
provides us with the wisdom to know how to spend our limited time.”
Our homework for the week…
+ (one thing we’d add to our time)
– (one thing we’d take away)
> (something to do more of)
< (something to do less of)
On that note, he mentioned Bronnie Ware, a hospice worker from Australia who asked hundreds of dying people their biggest regrets in life. The number one regret? They wish they’d had the courage to live a life true to themselves, not a life others expected of them.
