Two vultures tried to board an airplane, each carrying two dead raccoons for an in flight snack when the flight attendant stopped them and said, “Sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion allowed per passenger.
The vultures learned that some things in life have limits placed on them. We have speed limits, spending limits, weight limits and time limits. A wise person will establish wise time limits for certain activities. Television, internet, newspaper, and hobbies are activities that tend to require limitation, regulation, and in some cases, elimination if we are to use our time most effectively for the Kingdom.
What is it that you tend to spend too much time on? Make a decision right now as to how much time you’ll spend with that activity this week. Let someone else know about your decision. Purpose to stick with that limit and by doing so, you will redeem the time.
