Tuesday September 23rd, 2014: It Is Not Enough To Be Busy

Devotions

“It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?” –Henry David Thoreau 

I tweeted this quote a last week and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It is not enough to be busy. We must ask ourselves what we are busy about. Are we busy with sports or social media or our boyfriend or school? Has God taken the sideline in your busy schedule?

“Whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, you must do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31 NLT

 This verse gets me every time… WHATEVER you do, do it for the glory of God. So this includes time management. Sometimes I lay in bed at night thinking about all the opportunities I missed because I was “too busy” to reach people. I mean if you are a Christian every moment of your day should be spent intentional, right? Did you even have time to think about God today?

I am by no means saying I’ve got this all down either. I don’t. I just feel convicted personally because I am so busy but I don’t know where my time goes! How intentional am I being with my time? So today think about how you can be intentional with your time.
