Five Minute Friday: Opportunity

Opportunity. Does it really knock? Seems we are always looking for it. Or talking about one. It is the stuff that can make or break dreams. It can open doors for something new. We cry when we don’t have it. We are exhilarated when it comes to our door. In the Word we are told to make the most of every opportunity because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16).  So what are we waiting for? We can find our opportunity in the everyday things of this world to make the most of by pointing them back to the Glory of the Father. A kindness in the grocery to the mom with the baby who’s crying in the check out line, the meal you take to the neighbor who’s just lost his wife, the note you write to your child’s teacher at the end of the year; all of these everyday things are an opportunity to be Jesus to them.  There art thou happy. Ding.
