The Best Time To Plant A Tree

An ancient Chinese proverb tells us that the best time to plant a tree was 20 ago. The second best time to plant a tree is now.

Such wise words that have carried through time. Yet we disregard this piece of knowledge time and again.

It's never too late to learn

How many times have you said: Ughh… I should have studied harder in school? Or I wish I would have learned how to play guitar when I was younger?

We’ve all got hobbies we wish we would have pursued years ago. If we had, we might have become talented in our pursuit.

But we didn’t. We can’t go back in time and change the fact we didn’t pursue something we love. We can change something else…

You’re Being Pursued

Today, I am writing as a contributor to the Christian Writers Blog Chain. The theme for June is “Pursuit.” If you are a Christian author or writer, be sure to check out Christianwriters.com to network with others.

Our mailbox has been flooded with credit card offers recently. Finding two, three, or even four being delivered in a day has been the norm.

It’s annoying. We wind up throwing away so much paper, plastic, wasted postage.

But in the same breath, it’s exciting. Someone, or some company, is pursuing me.

They want my business. They want me to apply. They’ve approved me!

It all sounds so exciting. I can see how people easily fall into the trap of multiple credit cards and debt.

We all long for that pursuit. For someone to want us.

It’s a desire that has been burned into us.
