Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus,the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
Each day I bet you manage to do lots of things before you eventually depart from your home. Some may be checking Facebook posts, Twitter, Instagram, watching the morning news, reading the paper, but how much time do you allow for time for God, growing in Christ? Not asking to guilt you but to maybe have you change up your morning activities just a bit.
Do you make time to get together with special friends and family members? Then why not make sure you make a daily appointment with God. The news is normally bad. Many shows on television glorify celebrity. What does running to Facebook first thing do for you anyway? Lots of these little things can wait.
If Jesus is truly the number one priority in your life why not make sure what you do with your waking hours backs up that claim.
PRAYER: There is nothing wrong with social media Lord but give me the discipline to make sure you are first in my day before all these other time wasters and distractions. In Jesus' name. Amen.
