"A handful of quietness"

Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6 (ESV) 6

This verse speaks to the value quietness. This is a passage to meditate on when life gets too busy. Because all too often we equate busy with effective. But, Being busy does not mean  we are being truly effective.

We need to value our quiet time just as much as we do our work. We cannot be truly effective if we don't have some quietness in our day. 

Look through the gospels, and see how often Jesus found time for quietness. It was in those times that He was closest to His Father. When He went back to the busyness of life He was ready to serve and be truly effective .

So today, lets make time for quietness and enjoy sometime with our Father preparing to be more effective .
