I wasted plenty of time on nothing, spent enough time on the Internet to add up to a factory shift, and spent one fifth of the week looking at the backs of my eyelids. But in the end, God had only 2.8 percent of my week. Sure, I snuck some God-moments in my multitasking. I heard sermons in the car, songs on the radio, and studied the Bible during part of my homework, but I didn't listen quietly to His voice. In fact, only one percent of my time was really spent in uninterrupted time with the One whom I claim as Lord of my life.
168 hours....what will I do with it this week?
I challenged myself to spend some time applying what I have learned in school this week about prioritizing tasks. In seeking God, the scripture reminded me that Jesus' purpose was to give life in all its fullness (John 10:10). Because of his purpose, I have purpose. If he gives life in all its fullness, it is my responsibility to live it in all its fullness. But how can I live life to the fullest when I'm randomly moving from one activity to another?
