It is so comical that He should use an english proverb.
Just one stitch of ‘time’ sewn into Jesus can save a whole load of bother.
Give a moment of quality time with Jesus and it will avoid 9 non-quality moments.
We can spend so much time thrashing around with things that are not important or are a distraction. We can spend so much time trying to sort things out our way.
If we stop.
If we stitch time into Jesus.
He helps us sort out the rest and streamlines what could be overwhelming or stressful.
The Peacemaker makes peace.
