How would your life change if you knew you only had 1 month to live?
Many of us have read the story of Brittany Maynard, the woman who has terminal cancer and is choosing to end her life with dignity.
I can only imagine how I would react to this heartbreaking news but I would hope that in that month I would hug, kiss, and tell my family how much I love them until they couldn’t stand hearing it anymore. I would listen more, speak sweeter words, hold hands more and reconcile as many relationships that I could. I would focus on savoring each and every moment. Most importantly, I would make sure that my heart was set on God and that his light was shining through me.
Reading her story made me think about the environment in my home. We’ve all heard the saying that home is where your heart is. But what if your heart is absent? If your heart isn’t at home, where is it? Where are your priorities?
How many of us rush from one thing to the next, crashing into bed and starting over first thing in the morning? How many of us are impatient with our family, using unkind words to get what we want? Do you really listen to your husband and children when they are telling you about their day? Do you demonstrate patience? Is it your way or the highway? Most importantly, are you letting Christ shine in you?
I don’t know about you but I have a lot of work to do to work on my home!
What is one way you will start to make your home a place where your heart is today?
