Time is not your enemy

Following is an excerpt from the book, Choose!

We see time as the enemy. Something we work against. Something that works against us, robs us of life, cheats us out of youth, health, and happiness. Milton called time “the subtle thief of youth.”

We consider time the upturned hourglass whose last grains of sand fall through the aperture while we watch helplessly. A fleeing rabbit to be chased and, by some miracle, trapped.

Yesterday holds a log of lingering woes and fading memories. Tomorrow appears a gathering storm or the bottomless pit of our good intentions. Today we fight a fog of uncertainty clogging along in our daily routine.

But our despair about time wastes it. The Now is where we live. This moment is not merely “all we have,” as if it were little enough, but the gift of God to enjoy, the plenitude of life’s possibilities, the flower in full bloom.

Today draws loved ones near, the present makes plans come to fruition, this moment breathes the air of all that is.

Mick Jaggar, not my favorite philosopher, said, “Time is on my side, yes it is.” He’s right, if I choose today.

The choice, then: to fritter time away by the minute and hour, or to choose today as my day to live, to shine, to love, to laugh.

Choose! makes a great personal or group study, with questions at the end of each of its 13 chapters. Get it here.

choosefrontcoverpA sister in Christ bought 100 copies of the Choose book for a ladies day. In order to present the book to the participants, she asked author J. Randal Matheny a couple of questions about the book.

Q: Often we see books that address a problem this way: “If you’re feeling “______,” then read “________,” as a tool to make you feel or do better somehow. You address a different way to approach this area. What inspired you to write about choices, and specifically 13 of them?Read More

The one Bible book churches study most

How to keep the study of this book enjoyable and fresh, while still true to the text?

How to keep the study of this book enjoyable and fresh, while still true to the text?

During my almost two months in the US in May and June, I visited not a few congregations. Some I reported to, others I visited. Of those, perhaps a dozen or more, three were studying the book of Acts in their classes.

Considering there are 66 books in the Bible, it would seem that this observation of mine would be statistically significant. Acts is the book churches study most.

Though I wouldn’t put it in such terms, that someone has called the book of Acts the “hub of the Bible” testifies how highly the brotherhood regards this history of the church.Read More
