Make time for the most important thing of all


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times We live in a 24/7 world that never sleeps, an exhausting, always demanding global system that places enormous demands on our physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual health. It doesn’t always leave us with a great deal of time for anything else beyond our roles as producers and consumers in the constant rat race that often is the defining factor of life in the 21st century. So that means that, well, we really just can’t make time for God, our Creator and Lord and Savior. However, if we’re being honest about it, we’d notice that we actually are able to make time for going to a ballgame or watching one on television. We are able to make time to go up to the lake or down to the river and spend the afternoon fishing, swimming and boating. We are able to make time to surf the web and look for things we want to view and download. We are able to make time to hang out at the local beer joint or pool hall with our pals. We are, it seems, able to make time for just about anything we want to make time for except the most important thing we should make time for. If you think about it, it’s really quite stupid to make time for others things but not for God. A power failure or cyber strike can sever your connection to the web and turn your computer, laptop, and smartphone into high-tech paperweights. An extended drought or severe chemical spill or other pollution can put a serious crimp in your fishing, swimming and boating plans. A strike by millionaire ballplayers wanting to be billionaires or your favorite team having a really lousy season can screw up your athletic activities. Brawls have been known to breakout at beer joints and pool halls and you could find yourself seriously injured or in jail or both as a result. Time with God, however, carries no such risks and it can and does result in infinitely greater rewards than a ballgame or fishing expedition or surfing the web or swilling beer and shooting pool. Time with God is time well spent, a spiritual investment of our time and ourselves from which springs eternal rewards.
