Watching TV for hours.
Staring at our phones.
Playing video games.
Organizing our lives so we can catch every game – baseball, football, basketball, whatever game is on.
None of these things are bad….unless we do them a lot.
So much wasted time.
I have a new understanding this year of how very short our time here on earth really is.
We are a flame that can be snuffed out in an instant.
We are a flower that blooms and then quickly fades.
We are but a whisper in the winds of time.
Let’s not waste it.
Paul encourages us in 1 Corinthians 15 to give ourselves ‘fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain’.
This is my favorite verse in God’s word. I love the fact that nothing I do for God and with God is a waste of time. All of it has eternal value. That’s extremely encouraging to me.
When I think of all the time and effort and concern I’ve spent on things that were temporary and fleeting….
None of us have time to waste.
Please help us keep focused on you, Abba Father.

Yeah true. It’s about time we gear all our attention towards the things of God. The word of God is one of the most essential things in Christian growth. Focus and consistency on the word is all what we need to do. It’s about time!
Thanks! Yes- God commands us to love him first with all of our mind, soul and strength. Because it’s the right thing for us.
