“How we live our days is… how we live our lives.” – Annie Dillard
“It occurs to me it is not so much the aim of the devil to lure me with evil as it is to preoccupy me with the meaningless.” -Don Miller
WHAT YOU DO TODAY
Jesse Watson, a local pastor and friend, posted this thought today on his Facebook account: What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
It’s amazing how one small sentence can pack such a powerful punch. It’s left me thinking all morning… how am I spending my time? Am I getting the best return on God’s investment? The challenge that I’m taking this week: count your hours like you are counting calories.
I’m working on a personal fitness goal so I count my calories every day. I don’t want to be oblivious to what I’m eating – every bite matters. I’m hoping to apply the same dedication to my days. I don’t want to be a time waster. I want to go so far as to make a pie chart and see where those 15-18 hours go each day. Care to join me this week?
