why most people waste their lives September 30, 2011

there are 1,440 minutes in a day. everyday. every morning im woken up by the most annoying rhythm courtesy of my cell-phone-alarm-clock. this cell phone rhythm sets the tone for the day. i know i must make something of today, the most of today and believe wholeheartedly in why im getting up today or else instead i should’ve called in a “personal” day gone and played a round of golf.

throughout my week i come in contact with many types of people from different educational backgrounds and different religious beliefs. the more time goes on the more people discover what im all about. ive been noticing some contradictory responses from some of these people. how is it in one sentence someone will say they wouldn’t take back there promiscuous youth for anything but in the following sentence tell me “if i want to find a girlfriend i should go to church.” people turn down countless invitations to church on sunday, christmas eve service and easter service but if they have a real hard time they ask if i would say a prayer for a family member. questions are even starting to be asked about where the bible stands on different political issues. ive also been asked questions about vague meanings and understandings from bumper stickers in relation to the bible.

sometimes you can tell what other people are thinking by the questions they ask and how they interact with you. not everyone you meet will agree with how you spend your time or at least don’t agree how you spend your time is how they should spend their time. but if your consistent in your daily manner and live out your beliefs your influence will be undeniably noticed by everyone you meet. over time you will see how your influence affects the decisions of the people around you and what impression you’ve left behind.

i believe in God and his son Jesus and their mission of saving people from an unredeemable sin. im trying to live my life by James 4:14 in which it says “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” since im only going to live for a little while and then vanish i better make this one count. i don’t feel i must live in my own little bubble away from the rest of the world in order to stay Godlike. i believe i can live in this world but not of this world like it says in 1 John 2:15. i believe i can associate with the world but that doesn’t mean i need to adopt the worlds philosophies, belief systems or behavior in order to relate to people of the world.

everyday your investing in something in someone and in yourself. over a given period of time you will see the product of your labor. time is your investment capital what and where you are spending that time is your current assets. the product is the end result.
