Five Minute Friday: Relevant

It is Friday, I am joining up with Lisa Jo for her Five Minute Fridays.   Join me here if you would like. 

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!



World English Dictionary
relevant (ˈrɛlɪvənt) [Click for IPA pronunciation guide]
1.  having direct bearing on the matter in hand; pertinent

Perhaps this means that we live in the moment.   To be relevant is to see a need, acknowledge the need and do something about it.    If we are going to be relevant, we need to pay attention to the people around us.   It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and miss the people who are in need.   It can take just a moment to offer a smile and brighten a day.   Perhaps, just to be noticed and acknowledged makes a difference in a day.   A quick hug to say I know and I care, or to listen when there seems to be no one around.  

Jesus was always present in the moment, seeing those in need and extending love and care. 

That to me is being relevant.
