Do you like little soft things? Babies are cute because they are little and soft. Kittens and puppies win our hearts because they are little and soft. Little soft things give us warm fuzzies inside.
Unfortunately, some of us also get warm fuzzies from making little soft choices in the daily disciplines of life that end up wasting our time. For example, in the Book of Proverbs the lazy man is described as one that chooses “a little sleep” and “a little slumber.” In other words he makes little soft choices to stay in bed a bit longer than he should.
At meal time, it’s easy to make little soft choices which eventually end up shortening our lives by several years. Business accounts are often lost because of little soft choices that allow the competition to get ahead while we rest on previous success.
Remember, getting God’s best involves doing the right thing the right way at the right time. That’s also how we redeem the time.
