My children often hear me teach about a window of opportunity. Sometimes a window is open but then it will be shut. Sometimes forever. An opportunity is good chance or occasion to advance in some way. We are all given windows of opportunity in a variety of areas. We have a window of opportunity to develop a strong marriage. There are ministry windows. There is a window of time that we can develop a relationship with our children and one day that window will be shut. There is a window with our parents, family and friends that will one day be closed. There are career windows and education windows. Windows of opportunity to mend relationships. Opportunities to share Christ with someone. There are also special opportunities for spiritual growth or mentoring that will be closed. I have missed opportunities in life and I have taken opportunities. Once I was given the opportunity for a free education at Dartmouth. I didn’t take it. There have been other opportunities given to me that I am so grateful I accepted….Bible studies, volunteer opportunities, church internships, staff opportunities, relationships, mentoring by incredible people, seminary, marriage, time with my children, ministry, etc. Are you facing a window of opportunity at this time in your life? Don’t delay that decision too long or the window may be closed….forever.
