This is another Five-Minute Friday post. Lisa-Jo gives us a prompt and bloggers write for five minutes without editing or revising. This week’s prompt is “focus.” Click over here to see what others have written.
Limited time has a way of defining my focus. If I have days to finish a project, I will dawdle over each dot and squiggle. If I have hours, I settle in with laser intensity until the project is complete to my standards, which are often unreasonably high.
But, we all have limited time.
There’s the immediate sense of limited time in that we have 24 hours each day to complete whatever sort of list we have developed for ourselves. The cooking, cleaning, sleeping, writing, study, getting together, have only 24 hours each day to happen.
Then there’s the longview. I have a limited time that God will allow me to live on this earth with an eternity to follow. Eternity is settled. Unlimited time to worship a limitless God.
Bu now, now how do I live? Do I live as if the days are short and take advantage of every opportunity? Do I focus on the One who matters?
