2 Timothy 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
I need to repeat this verse to myself quite a few times every single day! It is so easy to get caught up in the things of this life that I forget about what is eternally important. Deal chasing, personal hobbies, general busyness -- all of these things can "entangle" us and keep us from accomplishing what God wants us to do. Not that all of these things are wrong in and of themselves, but when they hinder us from doing other, more important things they are most certainly wrong.
We must continually keep in mind that there is more to life than this life. There is the eternal life if you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior. And in light of that eternal life, we should be telling others how they can have it too. Our time here on earth is too short to waste time on the things of this life. Let's rid ourselves of the entanglements of this life and focus on the eternal life that is ours through Jesus Christ.
I'd love to hear how the Lord is working in your heart too! Link in or leave a comment and let me know!
