The Small, Useful Moments

Busy describes our days.

We don’t have time to volunteer for another position on the church board, our children’s sports activities have us exhausted, and a date night with our spouse? Who’s crazy enough to think we can work that in among all the other things we’ve got going on?

Yet, there are some things we can’t leave out of our schedule. We can’t afford to put them off so that we can squeeze in yet another summer block party.

Do we make daily time for reading our Bible? How about communicating with God? Do we share our faith with those around us?

Ephesians 5:15-16 reveals the importance of making time for God.

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”

Our Bible is available on our electronic devices. A daily verse can pop up in our email. Google it and sign up.

Prayer doesn’t need to involve hours on our knees. Driving to work, while heating our lunch, or in the school pick-up line. These are available moments for time spent with God.

Sharing our faith can be as simple as a sticky note. Or give a cupcake with a verse attached. Greet someone by remarking how God has blessed you today.

Time spent glorifying God isn’t wasted. It doesn’t need to take away from anything else. It can fit right into our busy days in the small, useful moments we all have available.

When we make time for Christ, we have more time for everything else.

Excerpt of the Day

Man might run from God, but the true believer can stand tall in the presence of the everlasting Lord.
