Based on your position in life, there are some that have it better than you and some that have it worse than you. There are those that are overwhelmed with life and act as if they never have time to eat or even sleep. At my workplace, I’ve heard people talk about how busy they are and do nothing about fixing it. It seems that if they would stop talking and work, they would be less busy. With all of the freedom that we have, we need to be careful with how we use our time! People talk about how busy they are, then they get caught doing something bad such as being involved with pornography, having an affair, or just not really caring about anything. Some people seem like partying, or even doing nothing, is more important than being productive.
It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community. I could go on. This isn’t the first time I have warned you, you know. If you use your freedom this way, you will not inherit God’s kingdom. Galatians 5:19-21 (MSG)
