Aware and Productive
Today's reading: Psalm 39:1-13
David's request for God to make him aware of the brevity of life is a good one (vs. 4). I say that because for a lot of years, I didn't give much thought to how long I would live, or more importantly, how I was serving God with the time I had left. At some point (around ten or so years ago) when I committed to consistently spending time in the Word and my relationship with God took on a healthy growth pattern, my thinking in this area shifted. For that I am thankful because as I write today, my top priority is serving God fully with the amount of time He has allotted to me. My goal is to live each day to the fullest as a representative of Christ.
How often do you think about the time you have left on earth and how you are using that time to serve God? Where would you rank yourself on a scale of 1-10 when it comes to being productive for God with your time? What can you start doing this week to increase that number? Tami
