The Marketplace

 
The Holy Gospel according to St John 2:13-25

The Passover of the Jews was near.
Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
He found in the Temple premises them who sold oxen, sheep and doves as well as the money changers seated there.  

He made a whip of chords and drove them all out and turned their tables, as he said,
"You have made my Father's House a Market Place."
Not much has changed since then.

The trade still continues, only now it's in his name.

The Exam of Life


“I’m so busy” —
three little words we say all the time as a way to decline invitations or additional work. It makes sense, though: Time is the most precious commodity because unlike money, we can’t make more of it. 

It is just a matter of prioritizing our day of 24 hours. With a 7 hour set aside for sleep-rest, the other 17 hours can be set based on the tasks that need to be attended to / accomplished based on our life goals.
(Read the below text in italics very slowly absorbing every word)  

You are at an Exam. A 100 mark Paper being attempted. 100 Questions posed and 100 minutes allotted to complete the Exam. Ideally you would allot 1 minute per question, so that you are able to attempt all questions in the allotted time. By spending 3 minutes elaborating an answer, would not fetch you 3 marks, as the question was valued at 1 mark only. But in the process you have lost time to attempt 2 questions. So your attempt is only for 98 marks not 100. What if you repeat this error, your total attempt value only reduces, and gets you closer to  the threshold to pass.
Let us understand the purpose of our visit on Planet Earth. List our must do daily activities. This will help us not spend more time at any one single activity, at the cost of another. After all we need to pass this Exam of Life too.
