Scripture…Practical help for daily success

Children Are a Blessing – Day 4 – T.I.M.E.

There are many definitions of love floating around but the practical definition I like best is this one:

Do you know how to spell love? T.I.M.E.

Children have a natural desire to want you, your time. While they still desire it, you had better spend time with them. They measure love by what they spend time with? Do you?

Spend time with your children. Everyday when I came in from work, I would tell my wife, “The children are mine!” I would spend time with them. I would eat supper with them. When they were young I would bathe them and put them to bed.

As the years went on we still made sure we carved out time to be with them.

When our older two started out on their life mission we were sad, but did not stand there and sob. We have given them the two most valuable resources we knew; the Lord and time.

Will you give time to your children? When they are gone, and it seems just like the snap of a finger until they are, you will be glad you did.


There probably has never been a one on their dying bed that said, “I wished I had spent more time at my job.” Make your children a time priority.
