Love… #CSLewis quote

Love, in the Christian sense, does not mean an emotion. It is a state not of the feelings but of the will; that state of the will which we have naturally about ourselves, and must learn to have about other people.

Mere Christianity

Are you available?

Life involves responsibility, but are there certain times meetings take priority over a friend in need, deadlines over a meal with your family? How important will that deadline be in comparison to having missed sharing that last meal with a loved one, having been there for your child who needed help with homework? How available are you?

How do you respond to the demands on your time in the midst of your busy schedule? Are you willing to have your schedule interrupted? Are you too distracted to listen or even hear the call for your attention from someone in need?

God often uses interruptions to get your attention. How willing are you to be interrupted?

Isaiah 50:2

When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was My arm too short to deliver you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you? By a mere rebuke I dry up the sea, I turn rivers into a desert; their fish rot for lack of water and die of thirst.
