STOP AND THINK – Frankly, most of the things in life are not as important as we think they are. (Robert J Foster, author)

Whatever is of the moment usually is the most important thing to us. And, of course, what is happening in the present is important. But, we should not be so concerned about the immediate that we neglect planning and preparing for the future. Later on, today’s “important” situation may be forgotten in the press of what has yet to occur.

And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber . . . The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light (Romans 13:11-12).
