Give it away to get it back?


Time given away is never time lost, time given away is always time found! If you are looking for some extra time today try giving some away to get some back! You may ask now, if I give it away how am I gaining anything? That is a good question if you look at it in the sense that you are just giving! Yet in giving someone, or even yourself some time think about it you have stopped long enough to gain some.

When we stop and give the time we still are feeling we do not have the lesson learned is, hey I really do have some extra time wow!! What a feel good time we have when we have found that something we had lost and so earnestly have been looking for. Once we find it we just want to celebrate, it is just like the parable Jesus shared about a women who had lost a coin. She swept and cleaned her house until she found it and got so excited she had to tell her friends about it. Luke 15:8-10

That is exactly the feeling of relief we seem to get when find some of the valuable time we have, or think we have lost! It all comes down to what are we willing to give away to gain something we so desperately need, rest, refreshing, renewing of our minds, TIME! When we stop long enough to just talk to someone we gain, when we stop give someone a smile we gain, when we just take some time to look in the mirror and say hey I like what I see, we have gained!

See it is not something we selfishly do to get some reward or a pat on the back, it is a natural reward we get when we just do what we should do! Stop just a moment catch our breathe and enjoy what is ours once we have given it away to get it back.Time given away is never time lost, time given away is always time found! If you are looking for some extra time today try giving some away to get some back!
