An angry patient stormed into an eye doctor’s office claiming someone had given her the wrong wig after her surgery. The doctor asked how she knew it was the wrong wig. She replied, “I noticed after the operation the wig I had on was this cheap ugly thing.” “Ma’am,” explained the doctor, “That just means your cataract operation was successful.”
Sometimes we just don’t see ourselves the same way other people see us. One example is the way we use our time. We often think we manage time better than we actually do. Sometimes it’s a good idea to ask someone to help you identify your weaknesses. The two best people to help you with this are your boss and your spouse. Ask your boss to identify your 3 worst time wasting habits at work and ask your spouse to do the same for your home life.
The Bible teaches us to encourage one another in the things of God. We can do that by getting honest help with redeeming the time.
