Sustenance from the archives+ & FMF: Moment

Sustenance from the archives+ (31)


A moment, Merriam-Webster’s dictionary tells us, is “a minute portion or point of time.”

“A minute portion.” Small. Tiny.

But what a difference a moment can make.

A momentary glace away can cause an accident.

A word thoughtlessly spoken in a moment can inflict a wound that takes years to heal.

A decision made on the “spur-of-the-moment” can result in consequences that last a life time.

Taking a moment to encourage someone can make the difference between someone giving up or continuing to press forward.

Taking a moment to notice God’s goodness and give thanks can transform the mundane into the sacred.

A moment.

A minute portion or point of time.

But what a difference a moment can make.
