The subject of spending time, talent, and treasure, came up in today’s sermon at my church. I was thinking alot about how I spend my time afterwards. How I need to be using all of my time to serve Him and not just spare time.
But today I started thinking about how I need to use all of my time for Him. Not just spare time. But every moment should be used for Him. When I am doing the tasks that seem mundane or meaningless…they are to be used for Him.
Often the answer is yes.
I need to change that.
I need my whole life to be an act of service and an offering for Him. He put me here to clean up these messes, to raise these kids, and as I have told them so many times, “To do all things without complaining….” Phillipians 2:14
Oh, how I need to value every second of my time, and see that every second can be used for Him. Not just outside acts of service, but every waking moment is to be serving Him. I don’t stop serving Him for any time. Each moment is to be used for service.
He gave me such an important job in raising these children and I must see it as that.
And even when they are not looking, and no one is looking…God is. I still need to be serving.
He is my only audience.
To have my kids look back and say, “Boy Mommy was a woman of God…never complaining, always praying, in the Word, and focusing on Him…” That would be such a reward.
I have no earthy rewards, only eternal gain.
