Thought for the Week

No matter how busy we are, we should take time to sit quietly

& find the Lord in our world of work & be guided by him.


It is easy to get our priorities wrong,

because all our working moments are busy ones,

but the danger is that if we do not take time to listen to the word of God & to pray,

we become slaves of our duties.


One of the great difficulties in life is that we neglect people

because we do not have the time to sit down & listen to them.

Our approach is often based on what we can do for others by acts of kindness,

whereas what they are really looking for is our company.


Time spent visiting the lonely

can also be time spent in the company of God,

for what we do to others, we do to Christ.
