Too often, we allow fear or procrastination or apathy to cause us to waste what we’ve got. We must remember, what we’ve got is a gift from God. It’s too precious to be wasted. For example,
- when you’ve got a good idea, don’t waste it, implement it.
- when you’ve got a moment of brilliant inspiration, don’t waste it, act on it.
- when you’ve got a prompting from God to do something, don’t waste it, obey it.
- when you’ve got precious time with someone you love, don’t waste it, enjoy it.
Last week, God reminded me of this principle. A couple of years ago I got an idea and a passion to write a book and, in many ways, I’ve wasted it! I’ve worked very little on the concept. However, a series of circumstances and a birthday has caused me to realize, don’t waste what you’ve got! Chances are, you’ve got something too that is far too precious to be wasted. Use what you’ve got!
