FIFTEEN HOURS OF FREE TIME
What would you do if you had a free day? Would you plan it or waste it away? Imagine 15 hours of time to yourself. Would you spend it with God or do something else? Would you spend it working toward His plan for you and just lazing around with nothing to do? Think about it. Fifteen hours is a lot of time to get some things done, help others and spend time with God. But it is also a lot of time to get distracted, be tempted and get into worldly things. Plan your free time well. Whether it is 15 hours or 15 minutes. You can use the free time you are given to do great things.
Romans 6:16 “Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, thank You for the free time You give us. We know we can use it to serve You or to submit to temptation and sin. Help us to choose to obey You today. Help us to plan ahead for the free time we have so we are reading Your word, helping someone or doing what You have called us to do. We give You all of our free time so You can guide us to righteous living. In Jesus name. Amen.
Free time comes with choices. Let’s be sure we choose wisely.
Knowing that we all have some free time in the day, we should go ahead and plan it so we are doing what we should do instead of wasting time.
Rest time is important and should be a part of our day but it shouldn’t be all of our day. Let’s be sure to do something productive for God.
The devil wants us to use our free time selfishly. Let’s be sure we are serving others instead.
There are so many productive and selfless things we can do with our free time. Let’s make a list of ten productive things we could do today and take action on one.
When we are saved, we are free from the power of sin. We can choose to do things for God rather than be a slave to the world.
Romans 6:22 “But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life.” (NLT)
