(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – 1 Timothy 1-4)
Is godliness more important to me than healthiness? It should be!
How much time do I put into building up my spiritual health? Do I go to the gym or a health club? How does that amount of commitment compare to my time invested in the pursuit of godliness?
I will be a product of my most committed time. That time doesn’t have to be directly designated; it just turns out to be getting the greatest commitment.
It is embarrassing for me to actually connect my commitment time to what my life is. Why am I like I am? Check where I’m committed. Why am I not where I should be spiritually? Check where my time is committed.
I understand that most of you reading this are working. The time commitment I’m writing about is not the work time. I am writing about the time you have control over beyond work.
There is so much punishing truth in this passage. God is not mocked. I’ll reap what I sow.
I must open my life to God. I want His Holy Spirit in complete control of me.
“O Lord, I am desperately needy. I cannot do anything that pleases You unless You are directing me. I surrender to You. Take over my time. Take over my commitments. I love You, Father.”
