There are several social media outlets online that vie for your time- and a good many of us spend a lot of time on them, myself included. Not to throw a guilt trip out there on anyone, but in my bible studies the other day, I came across this verse, in Exodus chapter 20, verses 4-5;
“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God…”
It’s important to note, here, that God is not “Jealous” in the way that most people would describe jealous, which is actually closer to envious, in definition. He doesn’t want another person’s house, or boat, or car, or any other possession.
what we have here, is a different use of the word “jealous” when God says He is jealous. What He is jealous of belongs to Him; and that is our worship and service – and our TIME. They belong to Him alone, and are to be given to Him alone.
So when our time spent on non-essential activities exceeds our time with Him or in His Word, we are in essence telling God that we have more important things to do.
We need to strike a balance, of seeking to worship the Lord in all we do- Not through useless whining and complaining, but using our time to face His book, and to say, “Yes Lord, this temple of my body is Thy Space!”
