Duet 12:13-14 Be careful not to sacrifice your burnt offerings anywhere you please. Offer them only at the place the Lord will choose …
While we must always strive to do whatever our hands finds to do with all our might, it gets to a certain point (or age) in our lives when we just can’t keep giving equal attention to everything.
Reality is the older one gets, the more critical it is for one to seek to know and understand the vital few events which are relevant to his destiny so that he can start giving priority to them!
We just can’t afford to keep gambling with time and events, fighting the wind rather blindly.
One of the very worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not to be done at all – Brian Tracy
These are days when we’ve got to be on the very cutting edge of destiny, hitting the right nails on the very head with a very strategic, purposeful and deliberate approach to life.
Peter Ducker categorized everything we spend our time and energy on into the trivial many and the vital few.
Moreover, Brian Tracy mentioned in his book ‘Eat That frog’ that “One of the very worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not to be done at all”.
Hence even when working on seemingly noble causes, we need to ask ourselves periodically by God’s wisdom and with the end in mind, whether they are really worth our effort.
The scripture before us today can be interpreted as follows: Be careful not to offer your sacrifices just anywhere.
Stop expending your time and energy anyhow and on just anything. Ensure to save yourself for the very best!
Lord, please teach me to know the few things that are vital to my One of the very worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not to be done at all so I might give attention to them and prioritize accordingly. Amen.
