We bring another week to a close. Thank you for reading these devos on a daily basis. Every day you are exchanging your life for something. In today’s verse, we read a question. You are exchanging your life for something. Your time is your life.
Every time you invest your time for something, you are exchanging your life. Your time is your life. Some people are exchanging their life for television. Some people are exchanging their life for talk radio. Some people are exchanging their life for a silly little ball. Some people are exchanging their life for fame that is not going to last until five years from now. On and on.
Every time you have an activity, you ought to ask yourself, “Is this worth giving my life to it?” because that is exactly what you are doing when you give some of your time. Is it worth giving my life for? If you want to find time for the most important things in life, you need to give the best you have to the highest you know.
The tragedy is some people go all through life and miss the most important thing in all of life. “Some people have missed the most important thing in life – they don’t know God.” Miss this and you miss the whole point of life!
Let us review the very basics again. You were made for a relationship with God. That is why you’re on this Earth. You were made by God, you were made for God, you were made for a relationship with God – to know Him, to love Him. That is why you are alive.
He does not want your religion. He wants your relationship.
