“The hurrier we go the behinder we get” is an expression that some use to remind others of the fast pace of life that’s required to keep up in today’s world. Some refer to it as a rat race in which there is little or no “quality time” to share with each other. This condition causes some to ask:
Is “quality time” disappearing from our lives; is it becoming a thing of the past?
Does God’s Word address any involvement on our part concerning the “quality time” issue of these end times?
It is a big world out there. Is it possible for us to make a difference in solving this problem?
The profit and loss statement has become more important to most companies than the quality of the goods they produce. Quality products are becoming as scarce as the “quality time” we used to share.
Remember when we could buy cars that came with chrome bumpers that provided some protection for our vehicles; Chrome, instead of plastic, was tastefully utilized throughout the vehicle. Can you remember the days when there were no Whoppers or Big Macs from American’s Food Chain; we were forced to eat quality food in family restaurants? Do we also remember how special it was to take our nickel downtown and enjoy a delicious scoop of ice cream from Johnny Walker’s Ice Cream Parlor? Most of us remember the quality of those days as well as the people who produced it.
Today’s scarcity of “quality time” is noteworthy as God’s Word warns us to expect deteriorating conditions in these end times, the times immediately preceding the return of Christ. Matthew 24:37-38 KJV is where God’s Word tells us this:
 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Today we face the same turmoil and corruption of family values that existed in the days of Noah. These conditions send a clear message to us…Christ is returning soon!
“What goes around comes around” and if we’re to fulfill our purpose, we must understand where we are in God’s timeframe. Prophecy is being fulfilled right before our eyes! The upheaval and declining values that families face today simulate a lifestyle that existed in the days of Noah; missing “quality time” is the common denominator. We’re living in a time where the future is dictated by shortcuts
