My children participate in jr rodeo and that involves various events. If you aren’t familiar with jr rodeo think little league for cowboys. Yes there are 5 yr olds roping and riding, but there are also some very serious very talented 19 yr old barrel racers. There is also everything in between. The object is to become a serious competitor in many events, the more the better while still being skilled. They earn points which add up during the year and at the end of the year they have an awards banquet. The prizes are pretty serious too. Things like buckles and saddles.
Now since my children are pretty serious about this we don’t mind putting some effort into it. And we also know that we do not know all we need to know. And we also know folks who know more than we do. So we have been spending some time with a friend who is really helping them. She has been giving them some help with the things they know well, but also teaching them some things that they really didn’t know at all. You need to know more than one event if you really want your points to add up. And to win all around, that matters. It is amazing to watch someone who really knows what they do share with someone else. Even just a couple tips makes a huge difference. An hour with an expert is worth many hours of practice. You have to know how to do something the right way, then you practice to make it perfect. We are very grateful for our friends who share their wisdom.
Now take this to a different level. If time with an expert can make that much difference, and it does, then how can time with the creator of the universe make a difference in everything we do. Time with the King of Kings makes us more like His Kingdom. Time with the one who says, “Let there be Light” can make us shine like that light. Time with the Spirit of Truth, can make us more like that truth. Time with the one who created freedom makes us free indeed. Spend some time with Jesus today. Time with Him is never wasted.
God is good !
