Trivial Time

The paradox of our time is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

Our time is precious and far too often wasted on trivial concerns. Take a few moments of your precious time to consider your place in eternity and the trivial will melt away.

  1. We also think from the outside in, maybe if we reversed that thinking we would see the true values in life are not things...simple is less complicated and the return is a thousand times better :)

    Happy Friday!
