Wasting time. What does it mean to you? I think some things we consider wasting time might be the best use of our time. Like...
1. Sitting with our children on the floor playing
2. Kissing my little baby over and over
3. reading a "silly" book to my two year old
4. cuddling with our husbands
5. just sitting outside and enjoying the outdoors
There are so many ways to use our time isn't there? Have you ever heard the saying: "Do you love life? Then do not waste time for that is what life is made of."? The important thing is to have God's perspective on using the time He has given us. The question is: How can we impact eternity while living here on earth?
There are only two things that last forever that we have now: The Word of God and people. If we are "wasting time" on either of these then we are making good use of our time. We can't take our house with us. It won't matter if it was perfectly clean or not. We can't take our computer with us. We can't take the television with us. It won't matter if you got to watch that "one show". We can't take our cell phones with us. You get my drift. "Waste time" on things that last and you will have no regrets.
