Another Opportunity

Here, we are moving into a new year, 2017.

What will you do with this gift of time that the Lord has given to you?

Just plod along from one month to the next until you turn around and suddenly find out that 2017 is walking out the door?

And you say, “where did the time go?”

Or will you take the opportunities that 2017 will afford you and live life to its fullest?

Will you make each day count for something good and great?

Will you work to make your corner of the world positive and fulfilling for those around you?

Will you take your time to help those in need?

Will you do one positive thing that you have never done before once a month?

Will you make a day brighter for someone who has had a tough day?

Will you stand with someone for whom life has been harsh and will you help them through a rough spot?

Will you take this year to be a friend to someone for whom the world has forgotten?

Will you secretly pay for someone’s lunch without their knowledge?

Will you call up someone just to see how the day was for him or her?

And finally, will you allow someone to do a good thing for you?

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people…” Galatians 6:10 (NIV)
