Do you recall as a student, one of the very first things your teachers typically did was take attendance each morning. S/he would go down the list and call each students’ name and you know you hollered “Present!” like the rest of us!
Do you ever stop and take attendance to note who is actually present in your life? Often we’re so concerned about who we are with that we don’t take the time to note whose with us. Stop for a moment and reflect on who in your life is really with YOU and who is actually with your TITLES or your TOYS. Trouble has a way of telling on folks. Try taking attendance in your life after your title is snatched and your toys have shrunk in comparison to the next persons.
