Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

Interesting reflection.

Thanks!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Then one of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, "What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?" They paid him 30 pieces of silver, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand him over. (Mt26:14-16)

"From that time on" Judas looks for a chance to hand Jesus over. Matthew used that phrase - "from that time on" - twice earlier in his Gospel, each time to mark an important
shift.

The first was after Jesus' temptation in the desert: "From that time on Jesus began to preach ... " It marked the beginning of his public life.

The second was when Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" and Peter professed him to be the Son of God. "From that time on Jesus began to show his
disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer greatly ... " It marked the beginning of the dark clouds on the horizon.

I now have the phrase used for the third time. It was another turning point, the moment when Judas, who must have been thinking about this for quite some time, decided
to do it - to betray Jesus.

Looking back on my own life, what are the turning points that marked a shift for good or for ill ... the mileposts that I can look back to and say: "From that time on
. .. "? Take a moment to think of some.

Now, go to the future. Years from now, looking back to Lent 2015, how would I like to be able to finish that sentence: "From that time on ... "?
