Life is short; time is precious. Some of us wish there were more than twenty four hours in a day but we know that will not happen! So we must use our time wisely and profitably.
For my Church, this is our year of purpose and I find myself asking if whatever I am doing, getting into, thinking of doing is purposeful. There has to be a point or a purpose to every venture, move, relationship, etc we engage in. Since time is not endless or in abundance, we can’t afford to waste it.
Jesus is always our prime example, He never wasted time. Everything He did, wherever he went, whether He ate or drank, celebrated or quietly went away by Himself, there was always a purpose to it.
Apostle Paul summed it all up in 1 Corinthians 9:26 “Therefore I do not run without a definite goal; I do not flail around like one beating the air [just shadow boxing].” The good Apostle intended to win the prize at the end of his run so he didn’t just run. He planned, prepared and executed, ensuring that there was a purpose to what he did and how he lived.
I want to entreat you to examine all you’re doing or about to do and ask yourself “what’s the point of this? What is the purpose? What is it leading to? Will it lead to the end I want to achieve?.” If you’re going to exert so much energy, invest financially or emotionally, spend time and other resources on something or someone, there has to be a point to it.
Love, Lady Monica ❤️
