Not the sickness!
I'm speaking of the opposite of "multi". "Multi" pops up in all sorts of situations...
etc... etc... etc....
Multi means MORE, MUCH, MANY!
(all words that our society likes... even desires!)
Multi-tasking has become my constant friend...
Of course it's wise to multi-task -we shouldn't just sit on top
of the dryer waiting for our clothes to get dry (Kyle!!)
Doing two or more things at once can be
extremely productive... in some cases!
However, I recently read an article that got me
thinking and prayingabout MONO-Tasking!
Some things are just meant to be done on their own!
Here's a few...
-talking to God
(we MUST have alone time, then we can
"pray without ceasing")
-reading the Word!
-playing with my kids
- sitting down
(sometimes I just need to do nothing!)
- dinner (just gotta have uninterrupted time with the
fam several times a week)
- projects and larger chores
(For Example: if I wait to wash the curtains
until I can wash the windows...
and then wait to wash any windows until I can
wash the windows in the whole house...
well, you can see why things stay dirty!)
But, if I will MONO-TASK and simply decide
that it's OK to just wash the windows in the livingroom
this afternoon... and maybe the kitchen window later next week...
then I just may end up with CLEAN windows
AND curtains in the near future!
Does that make sense?
Even if it doesn't... that's OK. I'm gettin' it!
I believe that God is showing me other areas that
shouldn't be "multi-ed", but rather "mono-ed."
Thank You, Jesus, for being so practical!
