How are we spending our time?
Mark 1:35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there He prayed.
Yahushua was spending time with the Father.
Mark 6:31-32 And He said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
The cause of work and pressure of things they needed rest alone together.
II Thessalonians 3:7-15 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 11For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 13But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
If you are able to work, we are to work. Not only work but do work as though working for the Messiah Himself, working with joy and purpose. Not all work, not all family, not all pleasure, balanced by the Word of truth. Every minute has a purpose nothing to be wasted.
Romans 13:11-14 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. 13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14But put you on the Lord Yahushua the Messiah, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
Let the renewing power of His word be our force for life. Worry, ambitions of covetousness, strife, unforgiveness, let these not be eating away your time.
Proverbs 10:16a The labor of the righteous tendeth to life:
Ecclesiastes 3:12-15 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. 13And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God. 14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. 15That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past
Father by grace let us use the time we have in love and righteousness. Let good prevail in our labors for your word sake. May we enjoy time with You, family, friends, in labor and rest with joy, peace which are some of the fruits of righteousness. Wisdom, to spend time well serving Your Son Yahushua the Messiah.
