Appreciate and Cultivate

Yesterday we were visiting a hospital and we saw a man who’s wife had just passed away. He was sitting in the dirt outside weeping inconsoleably. The scene was really heartbreaking. Why does it take things like this to jolt us into appreciating more what really matters in life, and the preciousness of the things God establishes in our lives: like love, marriage, family, brotherhood, brotherly love, etc. ? These are great things. The loss of them underscores that. And these are things established by God, so let’s more fully appreciate and cultivate the things which God has given us.
