But in the Greek there is also the word Kairos, which means “tie” in a qualitative sense – not the kind that a clock measures but time that cannot be measured at all, time that is characterized by what happens in it. Kairos time is the kind that you mean when you say that “the time is ripe” to do something. “It’s time to tell the truth,” a truth-telling kind of time. Or “I had a good time” – the time had something about it that made me glad. The ancient poet who wrote the Book of Ecclesiastes was using time in a kairos sense when he wrote of a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to keep silence and a time to speak. ~Frederick Buechner, Listening to Your Life
What time is it for you?
May you embrace the time allotted to you as you approach Sabbath, knowing that God is intentional on the days awakened with breath. Every moment counts, even when we can’t measure it. And nothing we do is insignificant, even wiping your kitchen counter while you think matters to Him.
Happy Sabbath Friends!
