Summer. A time for vacations, going to the beach and firing up the grill. What a great season for family. Wouldn’t it be ideal if everything slowed down so we could just focus on being together? For most of us though, summer still means errands, working in the office (and now the yard), and a hundred other things we should get done while there’s still sunlight left in the sky.
Ephesians 5:15 reminds us to “Be very careful then how you live… making the most of every opportunity…” These sunny months are full of delicious moments just waiting to be savored, moments we don’t want to miss because we’re too busy staring at our smartphone or a pile of weeds. This summer focus on finding the balance in it all. Be engaged, be intentional and be fully present with your family; celebrating togetherness and the gift God has given you in each other. Those are the things you’ll savor for a lifetime.
