Holy binders? I’ve discovered over the years that I seldom reference notes from old binders saved from meetings long in the past. When you think about it, had I skipped the meetings, my life would hardly been changed at all. Plus, think about all the precious shelf space I might have saved in my office? Was it time well invested?
Think about it. Time is one of the most precious commodities we’re given in this life. From God’s perspective, how we use it matters.
God’s Word tells us: “Jesus said, ‘I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.’” (John 9:4).
If binders had been around in Jesus’s days, He wouldn’t have collected any. His focus was on maintaining a perfect relationship with His Father. Doing His will was all that mattered. We could take a lesson from Him on this point. If we truly wanted to do what we can be proud of, each of us ought to strive to please God, serve Him and worship Him. If there is time after that to attend a conference or own a binder, go for it. Odds however, that time will be rare.
We pray. “Father, thank You for Christ’s example of a man Who worked the works of God and Who used every precious moment to carry out Your will through His life. I pray that I may follow His example of holy time investment and live my life in complete submission to His example. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
