Many hours are spent with men, how many with your Maker? – Spurgeon

Oh Life

Remember the days of being a kid, getting home from school, and going to play with your friends outside. For a lot of people, your biggest worry was probably if you were going to grab your bike or your skateboard. It was tough managing your bike riding time with your math homework time. Then you got a little older and you had to balance more important schoolwork with after school activities or athletics and maybe even college applications. Then you got to college and you discovered this new freedom – you get to make your own schedule – you controlled your time. But between classes, “social outings”, and all those research papers there just wasn’t enough time in the day – in fact, your days usually blended late into the nights – maybe you even pulled a few all-nighters. Then you graduated and became an adult and, if you moved out of your parents’ house, you started to experience “real life” – well as real as you’ve experienced so far. Life seems to just get busier and busier. You have real responsibilities during the day at your job. You come home exhausted – just wanting to relax.

I get this feeling that society is so quick to chalk up things we do wrong as “mistakes”, “missteps”, and “learning experiences”. That explains the result but it doesn’t do anything to address the root issue – so you’re bound to repeat it again. I feel that as Christians we sometimes adopt that philosophy.
