"Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is 'T-I-M-E'."
"I value you enough to give you my most precious asset - my time." Whenever you give your time, you are making a sacrifice, and sacrifice is the essence of love. Jesus modeled this:"Be full of love for others, following the example of Christ who loved you and gave Himself to God as a sacrifice to take away your sins."
- From 'The Purpose Driven Life' by Rick Warren.
Have been reading this book for a second time. I think I will keep on reading repeatedly, to rediscover, to remind and to remember the answer of the mystical question, "What on earth am I here for?".
Yes, one of the purposes you were created is to love. Once again, today's chapter challenges the common selfish belief of mankind. We are all told to value the time we have since young. This is good of course, but for what purpose? For the benefit of ourselves. We are told to manage our time wisely to achieve more, no matter in studies, in work place etc. But as you know now the most precious and priceless asset you have is time, how does it change the way you spend it? Take a moment to think about it. Will you choose to continue to invest all of it on yourself, or you will choose to build life and relationships with the people you love?
TIME, your greatest gift to give.
