Recently someone asked me why I wear a watch when I could find the time on my phone.

The fact that I like the look of watches seemed a little shallow, so I replied: it not only tells me the time, it saves me time.

They looked at me quizzically, so I elaborated.  When I need to find out what time it is, I simply look down at my wrist.  And voila, there is the time.  However, when you need to check the time, you need to reach in your pocket and pull out our phone.

As long as you have your phone out, you check your email and your Facebook, and you might as well see what the weather forecast will be for the next fourteen days.  And when you’re done, you put your phone back in your pocket and wonder what time it is.

It seems like a little thing, but life is made up of little things and little choices.

I’ve had people tell me they don’t have time to pray or to read their Bibles and my response is, we can’t make time, we can only find time.  Where will you find the time you need to do the things that will make the biggest difference in your life? Maybe by wearing a watch.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is possible, you’ll have to attempt the impossible.
