Time Well Spent

         I was reading in Thomas a’ Kempis, The Imitation of Christ.  In book three I read these words, “You can change yourself, but you won’t necessarily change yourself for the better. Try it, and see what happens. Chances are, you’ll meet your same old self coming and going.”  As I thought about these words, I realized that I become more Christ-like not by what I do, but by who I’m with.  It is time spent with God that makes me a better person.

         Time spent listening to him in prayer, reading in Scripture, going to worship church … sharing those special moments with him is time well spent.  This Advent take time to just be with God.  Why not try it, and see what happens.  Chances are, you won’t be the same old self as when you began your time with him. 

Merry Christmas,
