One of the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Think about it, what did your parents, teachers, family give you as you grew up? Their time. They spent time with you to play, teach, laugh, listen, explain and encourage. On your job, someone spent time with you so you could learn your position.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
I can look back on my life and see how the time my parents spent with me help mold me into the individual I am today. For this I am truly thankful. So, I will pay this forward to my children and others that God has placed in life.
