Sacrifice a Moment

Why is it that we expend more energy on getting out of doing something than it would have taken to do it in the first place?

We take the same amount of time explaining to someone why we can't be there for them as it would have taken to actually be there.

Not enough time for a quick hug, a sweet smile, too busy for a friendly nod. It takes half a second longer to pause and make eye contact than it does to abruptly push past someone in the hall.

What are we in such a hurry to get to anyway? Is it more important than the hearts we brush aside? Is that one second we save worth the lives we leave untouched, unloved?

Some people go through an entire day, or even a week without actually being looked at. A month with out being touched, a life without feeling loved.

Christ gave his life, HIS LIFE for these people.
Can we not give them something as well? Take a moment, slow down today, remember that the people you come in contact with are the very creation of the Almighty God, and that merits great value. Look someone in the eye; give a person one second of your attention, your respect, and your love. That second could change someone’s day, someone’s life, or even their eternity.

ouch, The truth hurts. People and their feelings, are much more important than a few seconds in a busy schedule.
