light_driven: Time

I have an embarassing story, but I must get it told, because I have a point with this.

Okay, I borrowed this game from my friend a few days ago, along with his X-box. I had played this game a little before, but I decided I didn't have anything to do in the summer and I was wasting my time, so I'd borrow a videogame (like that isn't wasting time). Well this video game is really really addicting. It's called Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It's based on the D&D system, but it's in a Star Wars envoirnment. I'm not big on Star Wars or sci-fi for that matter, but this game is fun. In 2 days I played it 13 hours (it has a little game clock). I found myself thinking about it, talking about, and even thinking about it in my prayers. Yesterday I prayed to God that if anything was getting in the way between me and Him, to remove it and to give me the strength to allow Him to do so. I wasn't thinking about the game at the time. Today I realized...Star Wars had to go. It was kinda difficult, not really hard. It only took about 5 minutes to get from a, "I don't know," to the X-box unplugged and me telling Mom that I'd be back in a minute after I gave Ben back his X-box.

It just made me think...how much time do we not spend with God, that we should be spending with God? Just take today, and look at your time you spent doing things that mean nothing, and then think about the things that meant something. I'd guess that 75% of your day means nothing.

yes, sadly you are very right. if we could only fathom the importance of our time NOW, here in this fading present. if today i have not changed a life, if i have not shared what i believe, if i have not defended my jesus...i have not lived at all...<><
