I heard a good message at church yesterday...it was one of those "oh, you knew
I'd be here today" kind of messages. Conviction after conviction. Even some tears.
One of the statements that really convicted me also reminded me of my
"un-word" that I chose earlier this year.
"It's easy to spend time on stuff that
amounts to nothing."
It's so easy to do that...and there I go. Wasting precious time again.
Another quote from yesterday's message...
"You are a production in the hands of God."
I want there to be evidence of progress in that production. There are things that need to be developed in my character and in my activities. There isn't time to work on developing those things if I'm otherwise occupied by spending time on stuff that doesn't really matter.
And one more...
"You are a participant in the work of God."
I need to cooperate with Him. I need to be available. I need to use my time more purposefully. I need to use my time on things that count....things that amount to something.
Note to Self:
Substance over stuff.
