We all live busy lives! It’s easy to buy into the idea that we have to remain busy in order to keep control…but the fact is…often we wear the label “I AM BUSY” as a badge of honour. Within our supposed busyness often we neglect the most important people and relationships around us. There have been many times in my life I have been guilty of choosing busyness over spending time with my wife and kids.
So how do we make relationships our priority? It’s one thing to say they are important …it’s a whole other thing to truly live it out. Is it possible for us who struggle in this area…to simply make a conscious decision to block out certain times of the week? Would it be that difficult to simply turn off all forms of communication & entertainment (cell phone / TV / computer / gaming systems) and focus on those people who we love so dearly?
So once you block out that time..what’s next? That often is the greatest fear of parents when it comes to spending time with their kids, “WHAT DO I DO WITH THEM”? Do you notice how easily the “BUSYNESS BUG” creeps in to this relational dynamic? Instead of DOING we need to focus on simply BEING…giving your children your undivided attention is the greatest gift you could ever give them.
