day 3K19: Idle Time

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: Stay away from all believers who live idle lives and don’t follow the tradition they received from us.”

As much as some times we would like to stop time (like this picture),








we can’t. Instead it seems like we try and idle time as if that is some kind of next best thing.  That doesn’t work either.  What does work is to make time work for us so that we make the most of it and we end our days feeling productive and fulfilled.  There are many time management programs out there.  It doesn’t matter which one we try, but we should be experimenting to find one that does work for us.  Afterall, we can’t get time back.

The Bible also warns us to not live idle lives.  We have been given much to use with the time we have.  If we feel we are idling in our spiritual lives then it is time to reallocate more time to Him.  He will take care of how that time becomes not idle, but like an investment, very productive.
