We all know the precious quote about that is Time and tide wait for no man. We have to understand the value of this quote as well as time.
No matter how busy you are, you have to take time to make the other person feel important. If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you will never get it done. You have to understand that patience and time do more than strength or passion.
By meeting 50,000 altar servers, Pope Francis urged to young Catholics not to waste their time on internet or mobile phones.
“Maybe many young people waste too many hours on futile things,” he said in a speech to 50,000 German altar servers who were visiting on pilgrimage, according to NBC News. “Our life is made up of time, and time is a gift from God, so it is important that it be used in good and fruitful actions.”
He went on to cite specific online activities, for example “chatting on Internet or with smartphones, watching TV soap operas and using the products of technological progress which should make simpler and progress quality of life, but distract attention away from what is actually important.”
Still preaching in the German, Pope said God needed a human being to bring his plan to completion: Mary, who “was completely free. In her freedom, she said yes.”
Young people asked to Pope what their actual role in Church should be how they could put to rights Church activities with the other activities and responsibilities and how they could experience freedom he is talking about when their lives are governed by the family and school rules.
Pope Francis just told them the world needs “people who witness to others that God loves them, that he is our father,” and that they are ones who need to share that good news with their peers.
What was not made clear from speech is what digital activities the pope does approve of. such as, is it “fruitful” and “good” to be one of the 4.3 million people who follow very active papal Twitter account? Are selfies OK when we are taking them with the Holy Father himself? What about peeping into Vatican City via the The Pope App’s sick webcam feature?
Formerly, Pope Francis described the Internet as a “gift from God.” Perhaps that is the case only when you are interacting with his branded pop digital existence and not say the Internet’s baser offerings.
Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
