Balance: Line Up Your Priorities WIth Your Purpose
We, as a culture, mismanage our time.
I know you are probably surprised that I am hitting this so directly, but I just feel it is the best way to go.
I myself have and still do have issues with my time & my priorities. There have been various times that I went, “I can do it tomorrow,” and when tomorrow came I was running, rushing, & yelling, “Aw man!” Shoot, to be honest I’m writing this blog right now the day that it is set to be sent in for review.
If you’re laughing right now I understand. Trust me, I can’t take it personal because nothing can be changed unless it is acknowledged.
The craziest part though is that in our current society this type of behavior is encouraged, rather than addressed. Apps such as “GrubHub” & “DoorDash” profit off of people forgetting or not wanting to get up because if they do then it’s ok because their food is brought right to the door.
Please, our entire society is based now off of convenience. The less that has to be done, the more popular it is.
Now you may be saying, “What’s the big issue?” The issue is that God is not pleased with us wanting to do less and get the same or even more.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 even states, “For even while we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.” (AMP)
In God’s eyes you plant, water, & THEN you receive harvest. You don’t just touch it with your thumb & see growth. So, we all, myself included, need to be more watchful of our effort & our expectations because the two need to match.
