Father’s Day Week, part 2 — “Make the Most of Things Today”

June 17, 2019

—Let’s spend some extra time this week celebrating Father’s Day —

Steve Barrett is a colleague and friend who wrote the following on this most recent Saturday evening.  He has graciously given me his expressed permission to share this with you —-

I was asked what I wanted to do tomorrow for Father’s Day. My first and immediate response was “preach.” After that the rest of the day came together…lunch with my family, possibly a nap, and worshiping at church in the evening. Even though it’s what we do most Sundays, I can’t think of a better way to spend it.

But I’m also reminded that just one year ago, plans didn’t go the way we intended. I struggled to get through the Sunday morning service. I skipped lunch and took a nap because I felt like garbage. When Kay woke me up from my nap, my chest hurt. Then it was off to the ER, transfer by ambulance to another hospital’s ICU, a medical procedure on Monday morning, and lots of prayers for healing by friends and family.

Don’t take “tomorrow” for granted. Spend time with your family and love them more than you love your job, money, or anything else (but Jesus). We aren’t promised tomorrow…make the most of things today!
