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. — 1 Corinthians 10:31

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

½  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!


1. What can you do with your time today that will make a positive difference in your life?

2. What do 1 Corinthians 10:31 and Colossians 3:17 mean specifically for your life?


Psalms 118:24
