In the busy world that we live in, you can choose what to do with the little time you have. For instance, on your way to or from work in that heavy traffic, you can choose to listen to some gossip on the radio station or decide to listen to some uplifting Christian music or make an even better choice- listen to sermon tapes or audio Bible.
While at home with not much to do, alone, you can choose to turn on the TV, watch a soap opera, read the newspaper, or- a better choice- pick up your Bible and have your quiet time.
Pay close attention to what is good, better, and best, and strive to make the best choices. Choosing God and His ways deepens our devotion to Him.
We must revere God, stand in awe of Him. Anne Ortlund expressed her own awe of God: “In my heart I do have a fear. . . . I long to grow more godly with each passing day. Call it ‘the fear of the Lord,’ being in awe of Him and scared to death of any sin that would mar my life at this point.”
We should have this same heart for God. A heart that fears missing His best because of faulty choices. Are you in awe of God and what He wants to do in you, for you, and through you?
What are you always busy doing?
Seeking God’s Kingdom and righteousness or running after worldly pleasures?
You can be busy and not be guilty of being busy for nothing important.
