Gist of the Just

How time flies!
Is it Tuesday already?
I ask you, where did the weekend go?
To be honest, I wonder where the last 50 years have gone.
Time flies when you’re having fun; it whizzes by.
Try to get a youngster out of the swimming pool.
‘But Mom, I just got in!’
Announce that it’s time to leave Disney Land.
‘We just got here!’
You acquiesce; it’s the last day of your vacation trip. And yet, it does not seem possible. It seems like you just arrived at your destination.
I believe you get the gist of the just…
Time flew for Jacob. No, he wasn’t having fun herding sheep. He was in love.
“Now Jacob loved Rachel; so he said, ‘I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.’
And Laban said, ‘It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me.’ So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her (Genesis 29:18-20 NKJV).”
What’s time when you serve out of love?
“Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you (1 Samuel 12:24 NKJV).”
