Everyday we all speak of busy schedules and rush hither and yon to get everything on our extensive lists done. But how many of those stress creating, busy makers, are really heavenward focused? How many of those "have-to-get-done-s" are done because they are expected of us by others, and we want to look good in the eyes of those same others? If I told you that you would die before today was over, which items on that to-do list would you like most to accomplish? How is that for putting your life into perspective?
I do not know about you, but I would like to die knowing that I had taken time for God this morning, and that all was right between us.
When you look at you list of things to do, do you have items like: check Facebook, watch a (specific) T.V. show, go shopping at the mall with you girlfriends. If so, maybe you need to take some time to look over you priorities and tweak your list of "to-dos." Taking time for fun is not always a bad thing, in fact it is often times a good thing, so long as we do not go overboard. We all need down times and rest, and I do not think God begrudges us either of those, or fun. At the same time, if we are not making God our number one priority each day, then I have a feeling He would have a thing or two to say to us about it. :)
