4 things that keep a family together:
- Build Solid
- Build Sacred
- Solve Calendar
- Solve Conflict
Solve Calendar: Since Jesus is at the center; new things become sacred (holy set apart). Therefore, we should put the sacred things in our calendar. Otherwise, the ‘busy’ will crowd out the ‘important’.
4 Well Timed Lessons:
- Your worldview defines how you view time &use time.
- If it’s not in your calendar, it’s not sacred.
- Put sacred things in your calendar first.
- Create a “closed for business” sign for your family.
Plan Together: Nobody can solve every calendar problem all at once. But you can progressively build a solid future for your family by putting the Sacred (big rocks) in first. Sit down together as a couple and practice putting the Sacred (Big Rocks) in your calendar for next month. Then, live it. Along the way, figure out what pebble size commitments need to be planned. Even plan time to relax & recover. And if you have to shift a Sacred Rock, work it out until it’s back in.
Pray Together: “God our Father. Give us wisdom into our calendar to do what we can do. And do for us what we cannot do as you hold us together. In Jesus Name, Amen”.
