Paul mentions that to be wise, I shouldn’t waste my time. I should use my time to discover God’s will in my life. To pray and find out what comes next. I know I waste a lot of time, especially at home. How much time have I wasted by watching RedBull TV mountain bike vides, or the barista showdown? How much time have I wasted watching mindless television. Way too much. The worst part is, I’ll never receive that time back. How much could have I grown my faith, or my knowledge in the Lord? How many more people could I have witnessed to back home? Or maybe just have edified? I’ll never have that time back. I know I like to talk to some of my friends in my hometown. One owns a coffee shop and one owns a bicycle shop I work at and I made friends with my workmates, but they don’t know the Lord, and I wasted my time watching pointless videos when could have grown my faith and witnessed to them. Looking back, I just see how selfish I was, and still am. Yea I would have that occasional talk of God, but never really a deep or meaningful talk where I actually witnessed. Often times I would just blend in with them, you couldn’t tell much of a difference between them and myself. Paul says though, which I really enjoy, “Redeeming the time.” Yes, that time is gone, but I have a week in April, and at least two months after field time of which I can show them Christ’s love and His grace. I don’t want to go home and be the same person that I was when I was home just a few short weeks ago. I feel closer to God and I feel I have wasted a lot less time, yes I still waste time here, but a lot less of it. So for my application I have two: My daily application will be to find at least ten more minutes that I can use to pray. Then my application for April, is to cut my red bull tv intake out completely and use that time more wisely by praying, reading the word, or by using it to show the love of Christ to my friends back home.
