This has lingered for too long; people don't seem to understand that there's a life beyond their private and public lives. For a truth, what you do in your private life affects your public life. If you pray well in your private times, it would definitely influence your public life. If you study well in your private times, you'd live a remarkable public life. If you train well during your private training hours, you'd be an amazing public figure.
The reason why we invest in our private times is so that we can have a better public life. But the fact is; both the private and public life are outward lives. What about the peace, the joy, the hope, the faith, the love, the ones that nobody will see except you show them? These are inward virtues that can only emerge from a secret life. I've seen people who spend quality time in prayers, but lose their peace when there's a little challenge. They pretend to love publicly, but when the love is really needed, they disappoint the expectations of people. And all these things happen because they don't invest in their secret lives. Oh, how much I love Jesus; He gave a perfect example of how to live the secret life.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; THE BIBLE SAYS WE SHOULD FOLLOW PEACE WITH ALL MEN, OTHERWISE WE WON'T SEE GOD. IT'S MORE LIKE SAYING "THE BEST WAY TO LIVE YOUR LIFE IS THROUGH THE SECRET LIFE". Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
