Nobody likes wasting money.

Of course, we all have different definitions for “wasting,” don’t we?

The same applies to the use of time.

What is your definition for wasting time?

Perhaps it is this one: Wasting time or money involves spending either — or both — on things that produce no long-term benefit for others, for self and for the One who created us.

Paul wrote in Colossians 3:17 that whatever we do should, directly or indirectly, bring glory to God.

I’m glad that something as mundane as fixing a clogged washing machine drain can be seen as faithful to Colossians 3:17 because I am doing something that helps Lori and I to have clean clothes for church, for work, for meeting people in the community AND it saves money, some of which can be put to use for Kingdom purposes.

Being a good steward of money and time is expected of Christians.

That’s why it’s vital that our choices never reflect the terrible lifestyle picture painted in Proverbs 17:6…..

“It is senseless to pay tuition to educate a fool, since he has no heart for learning.”

I pray that you have a heart for learning. God has invested so much in creating you, in providing for you, in sending numerous people into your life to love you and help to shape you, the greatest of whom is the Holy Spirit.

Please show God that His “tuition” investment into your life has been a good one.

Show Him that you want to learn more about Him and about how to fulfill His purpose for your life.

He’ll be SO pleased to know that there is one less fool in the world.

As always, I love you
