The time we waste on meaningless things that cause meaningless anger that cause meaningless self-righteousness that cause a meaningless onslaught of distraction.
it doesn't matter what it actually is. cup. dress. sport. politician. proposition. medicine. relative. "first world problems". (more like spoiled brat problems).
Here's a lovely little excerpt from The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis...
"You can make him waste his time not only in conversation he enjoys with people whom he likes, but in conversations with those he cares nothing about on subjects that bore him. You can make him do nothing at all for long periods."I think if Lewis were around today, he would have included such things as the Inter-webs and Facebook among Wormwood's tools of distraction.
so in an effort to NOT be an extended distraction for you, I'll keep this short.
listen to this.
now go do something productive. whether its snuggle and pray for/with your child. call/visit a friend to encourage them. walk outside and worship the creator. wash the dishes. Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.
