In this age of smart phones, Facebook, Twitter, and all the other distractions we deal with throughout our day it’s sometimes hard to “be all there” as exhorted by missionary/martyr Jim Elliot in his famous quote:
“Where ever you are, be all there.”
Where are you?
- Home –“Be all there.”
- Work – “Be all there.”
- Prayer –“Be all there.”
- In conversation with your child, friend, spouse, co-worker, associate, client, acquaintance – “Be all there.”
- Church – “Be all there.”
- Your Child’s Event – “Be all there.”
- A Volunteer Meeting/Event – “Be all there.”
- Dinner with friends or family – “Be all there.”
I think this is what is meant by savoring the moment. It’s embracing life. Because as we all know, life is short so be all there.
