Would you like some direction for how to use your time today? Try naming one eternally significant activity you would like to do in the future and list why you want to do it.
This can be a very powerful exercise because it will often reveal something God has placed in your heart to do, but which still has not come to pass. When I asked myself this question, the first thing that came to my mind was a desire to speak at conferences for Christian students attending secular universities.
Why? Because I became a Christian as a college student when some young men from the campus Christian groups witnessed to me. Those conferences then became a big part of my early discipleship. I’ve always thought I’d like to speak for one of them, but never done it.
Identifying an eternally significant activity you desire to accomplish and stating why you want to do it might give direction to your day. If so, go for it, and you’ll redeem the time.
