Taking time to think

Most of us are guilty of not taking enough time to think. Last night in our church teaching meeting we were being reminded from 2 Timothy 2 that it is important to consider the teaching of the Bible and to remember, Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian then you, like me, need to build in time to your life to do this.

If you are not a Christian taking time out to consider Christianity is probably the most important bit of thinking that you will ever do in your lifetime. Isaiah the Jewish prophet writes in the Bible "come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be a as white as snow". God invites us to stop and consider and he is willing to wash us clean from the guilt of our sin. The New Testament confirms this fact - 'if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness'.

What do you think about that? What's the picture got to do with it? It's a tea room in Pitlochry which is very relaxing to visit. It reminded me that there are times when we need to stop...and think. Hope you do, don't tell my wife. She thinks I never stop!
