Are the things you do time wasters? Do the things you do have value? Are they profitable for a life trying to live purposefully before God? I have been asking myself a lot of questions lately and thought I would take this week’s post to share them with you.
If I spend time on the computer, on Facebook, Pintrest, reading blogs and yet have no time to read His word what am I saying by my actions?
If I spent hours in front of the Television and yet spent no time sitting before the before God, what would you say is important to me?
If I have time to talk on the phone or texting and then say I have no time to pray, what is more most important to me?
If I run a marathon, exercise every day and never miss but do not have time to spend with God what is important to me?
If I am so busy at work, spending hours on projects and yet do not have time to study His word, or be available for divine appointments then what is important in my life?
I say I love God and my relationship to Him is important. But how often do I make excuses for not having enough time to sit still. To listen. To be used in the life of another.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my time. Do I use it purposefully? IS it used for the Lord or do I selfishly waste my time.
Let me challenge us to take an evaluation of our time. What does your time spent look like? I someone took at look at your time spent what would they see as most important to you?
If you have enough time to do all the things that YOU feel are important and God is getting the leftovers, then what is important to you?
There are things that might seem important, or harmless, but my question would be “does it have any eternal value?” What is the purpose of doing what you deem is important.
He longs to be gracious to you. To spend time with you. He is waiting…
