What would you do differently?
This thought occurred to me tonight as I flipped through Facebook reading the status’ of those buzzing about a new book called Four Blood Moons. I don’t know much about the book, but the idea that Jesus’ return is imminent seems to be the theme.
What would I do differently, right now, if I knew for sure Jesus was coming tomorrow? I’d wake my kids up and tell them the gospel one more time.
What would I do right now if I knew Jesus was coming back in two weeks? I’d talk to my kids about salvation every single day, and pray for them by the hour, and fill our home with praise and excitement.
What would I do if I knew that Jesus was coming back in two months? I’d read the Bible to my little ones every day, and change the whole focus of our school time.
What would I do if I knew Jesus was coming back in six months? I’d practice reading with my eight year old so often that he could read God’s word on his own. We would all pore over His word as a family in order to prepare our hearts.
Wait a minute. Wait just a minute.
I think this says a whole lot about what I should be doing right now. Today. Tomorrow. Next week.
And I’ll be blunt, I’m pretty sure that writing for a homeschool blog would not be on my list at all, and if it was on my list, what I’d write about would be very different. And that gives me pause.
