A Waste of My Time?

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is (Ephesians 5:15-17).

We just never seem to have enough time in the day, the week, or the month. We wish for a 25-hour day and an eight-day week in order to accomplish all the tasks of our busy lifestyles. Even when we take a day “off” that day often becomes busier than our “work” days. So we try to become more organized in order to save a little bit of time here and there. There is time enough for those things (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).

It’s good to be busy and work hard, and we could all probably be a little more organized, but let’s make sure we’re busy trying to understand what the will of the Lord is in our lives. If you want to be organized make sure you are wise and careful in your spiritual walk first. Those plans you make should be committed to the will of God first for that way the will have the most long-term effect (James 4:13-17).

The days we have here in the physical realm are numbered and, more importantly, they are filled with evil influences lurking around every corner. Let me encourage you to make the most of your time here on earth by reading your Bibles, praying every day, and taking every opportunity to spend time with your church family. I promise it won’t be a waste of your time.
