A Minute Saved is a Minute Earned

April 4, 2011

During my days at Bath and Body Works I have been taking my Bible with me to work and reading the Old Testament on lunch breaks, and it has been such an encouraging time in the middle of a long day.  When I was little I spent alot of time reading and listening to the Old Testament and learning the stories there, but hadn’t delved in in a while.  Reading about how God led his people and then how they would leave him and worship idols (in spite of His faithfulness), has really caused me to reconsider the time that I spend with my idols and what that does to the relationships around me.  One of those idols would probably be the time that I spend on the computer or watching the TLC channel.


(…I really do like that show “What Not To Wear”…)

We just got cable when we moved, and this is the first time in my life that I have had cable in my home.  It used to be that when we went to a hotel or on a vacation, that was the only time that cable/tv was watched.  Now I find that it is so easy to just flip on the tv and waste an hour (an hour that I don’t get back) and mindlessly let myself become caught on a show that I really don’t need to be watching.

How many times a day do you find yourself caught up in something that is not important to the day, or even at all?  Is there a certain area where you struggle?

    i try to limit my computer/blog time as well! it’s a challenge but when you consider the real people in your life who are so much more deserving of your time, it’s worth it!

      Yes I agree… since I am so far away from my friends and family 😦 computer is one of the best ways to catch up with them, and then in the midst of that get swept up in things such as online window shopping…. you know…. 😛
