I haven't had TIME for Facebook, because I have been busy keeping up with 27 different blogs.

Seriously, these are wonderful truths that definitely change the way we approach life. THANK YOU.

Here is another way to look at time, money, abilities, etc: I "stole" these four principles from Faith Baptist in Lafayette, IN.
1. God owns everything, I own nothing.
2. God entrusts me with everything I have.
3. I may increase or diminish whatever God entrusts me with; but God expects an increase.
4. God may call me to account at any time.

Once again, thanks for boiling down Biblical truth so that we can digest it.

Thank you so much for this post!

I was also considering what message this sends to our children, when they are trying to tell us something that is important to them, and we just mumble acknowledgement to get them to go away.

"Go away, kid...ya botha me!"

How sad. And even sadder that I am often guilty of this. But praise be to God that when I am weak, He is strong! I can confess my inability and have His help and strength to enable me to serve someone besides myself.

Absolutely the truth. To feed our selfishness only makes it grow. What am I feeding, my spirit or my flesh? Galatians 6:7 says, "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."

This series is phenomenal. I just joined Facebook a few weeks ago and this has been so helpful in framing my use of it for God's glory! Thanks so much

Thanks Jay for reminding me to not be grumpy! Praise God I am beyond the dirty diaper stage, but I still deal with other dirty things so I will begin to use them to thank God for His provision.

Thank you so much for this excellent entry dealing with a touchy(unfortunately) subject even for Christians. How subtly this "me" time makes its way into our lives. Thanks for the gentle nudge to stay God-centered even in the mundane tasks of life.
