How many hours a week do you watch TV?
How much time do I spend on social media and other aps on my phone?
Do we organize our lives so we can catch every game – baseball, football, basketball or whatever game is on?
How much time do you spend playing games on your various devices?
None of these things are bad….unless we do them a lot.
So much wasted time.
I have gained a new understanding these last 5 years since my son was killed 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 to ‘Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58.
This is one my favorite verses 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.
