While searching the internet recently, I came across something I’m amazed that I have survived without for the past 43 years. It was a motorized, revolving tie rack. It held about 30 ties, came with mounting hardware, and required 4 C batteries.
I really couldn’t understand why anyone would buy a motorized revolving tie rack. I suppose it could be done in the name of time management, but you could easily a tie from a standard tie rack much quicker than waiting on this gadget to spin around. Not to mention the time mounting it and changing batteries.
Then I thought of how God often gives us desires to do great things for Him, but instead of channeling those desires into the great works He intended, we squander those impulses on lesser things.
Today, if God gives you the desire to do something great for Him, don’t divert that desire toward a trinket. Accept God’s gift of time, and put it to it’s best possible use, so you’ll redeem the time.
