A Good Watch…

Calendar Wisdom: “A Christ-centered life is like a good watch: open face, busy hands, pure gold, and full of good works. (Unknown author) ‘Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21)’” How interesting in these days of sheltering that the unknown author compared our life of faith to a watch and not a calendar. A watch is present oriented, walking with us on our wrist or attached somehow over our heart. Our faith engages in the present and leaves the future in God’s hands. I would understand an “open face” as the life of integrity that I pray characterizes my actions. “Pure gold” refers to actions tried by fire so they are pure. And what good works does God have for me today…ah, I am already slipping into the future. May your day be met with integrity, shine like gold, keep your hands busy and bring glory to God.
