The 2020-2021 Booklet
How do you spend your time? Are you busy with a long list of responsibilities and things to do - like Martha, who was “cumbered about much serving”? Do you actively set aside time to spend with the Lord and over His things - like Mary, who had “chosen that good part”? Perhaps you're more like the people of Athens, who “spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing”? Over the last several months, many of us have seen significant changes in the demands on our time and the amount of free time that we have available. The decisions we make about how we spend our time, and about which things we consider to be so essential that we will make time for them no matter what, will have lasting impacts on our spiritual health and growth.
The theme for the Scripture Searchers this year is “Time": how much we have, how we use it, how God uses it, and how He works through the ages of time to accomplish His purposes. In addition to being exercised about how we use our time, I am reminded of the men from the tribe of Issachar who identified themselves with David as he fled from Saul - they are described as having “understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”. Surely this understanding of God's timing is essential to knowing how we should act in this world. How often we have seen error and confusion arise among Christians, that can be traced back, at its roots, to a misunderstanding of our place as pilgrims and strangers in this present time.
Let us each ensure we have made time in our lives for the Lord and for His things. May we never be so caught up in earthly responsibilities and distractions that we squander the precious time that has been entrusted to us.
