Don't Waste Your Time
We need to take a good look at our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He never wasted any of His time.
Everywhere Jesus went, He did something to magnify God. Every word that He spoke was something worth saying. Every pray He prayed He asked in faith and in accordance with the will of God. In every conversation, He repeated no rumor or false accusation. Every miracle that He performed was done with no self interest. Jesus knew that His time was limited and that He had to be about His Father's business (Luke 2:49).
People treated Jesus horribly, yet He wasted none of His time holding grudges. He forgave people, even those who where executing Him on the cross (Luke 23:34).
Jesus spent His time wisely, teaching, preaching, feeding, healing and generally doing good for others and sharing God's message and God's love.
How are you spending your time. Are you honoring God with your time? Have you committed yourself to spending time in prayer to God? Have you committed yourself to spending your time studying the Word of God? Have you committed yourself to doing good for others to the glory of the Lord?
"Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light."
~ Romans 13:10 - 12
Don't waste any more time following after the vain things of the world that do not glorify God. Give God your time and He will work through you and prosper your efforts. Use every opportunity to do good to others and give God the glory. The world may not understand why you do what you do, They may think it is a waste of time, but it is not. Nothing the you do for God, in faith, in love, and in truth is ever in vain.
