You know the feeling. You open the refrigerator door and there’s something green inside. The only problem is it wasn’t green when you put it in there. And it didn’t smell the same as it does now. That’s right. It’s the dreaded leftovers.
Leftovers are never as appetizing as first servings. We only eat leftovers when we have to. Sometimes they’re even what we throw out to the dogs.
When it comes to our time we also have main courses and leftovers. The main course is the good stuff we give prime time to. We plan for it, anticipate it and carefully guard it as a high priority. The leftovers are the final few minutes at night before we fall asleep.
Which kind of time are you giving God? Jesus said in Rev. 3:20 He is standing at the door and knocking. He wants to come in and have fellowship with you. Giving Him your prime time, not just your leftovers, will redeem the time.
