How Are You Spending Your Time? 
This devotional was written by Jim Burns

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. I Corinthians10:31

If you live to be seventy years old, the average person will spend:

20 years sleeping
6 years working
7 years playing
6 years eating
5 years dressing (4 1/2 years for bald-headed men like me!)
3 years waiting for somebody
1/2 year in church
1 year on the telephone
5 months tying shoes 

How are you spending your time? Are you productively making a positive difference with your life? Today is the first day of the rest of your life. You can choose to make it a wonderful day with God. Go for it!
