We can all say these things: We talk too much, sleep too much, eat too much. We think too much, watch TV too much, argue too much. Some of us drink too much. Some of us smoke too much. We spend too much time on our couches and in our easy chairs rather than getting up and taking action. Some of us spend too much time working, reading, gossiping, hating, judging, condemning, and guilting.
I wonder how many of us can lay claim to the following: We pray too much. We praise too much. We worship, glorify, and honor too much. We spend too much time on the things of God. We practice love, kindness, gentleness, and humility too much. We value peace too much. We sow too many seeds as we travel through life. We spend too much time thinking of ways to bring His wonderful truth into our world, and not enough deciding what we should wear every morning. We spend too much time with God. We spend too much time deflecting negativity and evil.
The cleanliness of our homes, cars, and lawns takes more time than the cleanliness of our souls.
We have to get our priorities straight. We spend too much time on the wrong things and not enough time on the right ones.
Everyone has time to do those things that are truly important to them.
