>I Need to Wake Up

Posted: July 10, 2009 in Christian, Money, Time Management

>Back in 1994 in Houston, TX I was coming back from a long day at my Army Reserve Training weekend. It was late at night and I was exhausted. The drive was a 25 minute drive across town and I wasn’t looking forward to it. The next thing I know I pulled into my driveway and I didn’t even remember driving home. I was so tired and on auto-pilot that I wasn’t even really processing the commute home. It scared me.

Something very similar causes me grave concern. Actually it made me sick to my stomach last night as I realized that my mindset had slipped into wanting more stuff instead investing more time and resources into the lives of people that are hurting physically and spiritually. I believe many us as Christians have become lulled asleep by a passionate pursuit to be comfortable and entertained. There seems to be a desire to accumulate wealth and more “stuff” instead of using that same drive to invest in the true mission of the Church. This world is temporary yet we don’t seem to act like it. We are on auto-pilot pursuing this “American Dream.”

Bottom Line: How is our lifestyle different from the world in regard to how we spend our time and money?

Let’s Wake Up,

Nathan
