Passage Lookup

In today’s reading, the people worshiped their idols in the hills of Israel. This had been a holy place but now the area was polluted with idol worship. God’s judgment shows us the worth He gives to our souls so we understand the value of the gift of Jesus. A price was paid for sin so that God can be with us and never let us go.

A lesson to be learned from this passage is to use our time wisely. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that we should guard well spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life. My hope is that I take this lesson learned today and invest it wisely for the future.

In confusing times, we should affirm our faith by believing God has a purpose for each of us. We should be patient, continue to be ready at all times, and use the gift of time wisely by employing spare moments to learn more about Him.

This Day with God, I’m praying that He continues to validate within me the beliefs that lead me to better use of time. Today, I’m praying that I value my time and guard spare moments so they are used wisely in building a useful life. I hope you will make it a part of your prayer also.
