What God gave you time for

Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.

It is what God gave you time for.”  I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about how I’m spending my time.  This particular quote, one paragraph from a much longer and equally good article, was quite timely.  God doesn’t give us time for its own sake, but as a vehicle through which to do something – a means, not an end.  That is not to promote a certain activism, a twittering gotta-do-something attitude, because rest properly understood is something you “do”.  It is, rather, a reminder that not only are we given talents God desires to see us use properly, but we are given time that we must use properly as well.  Nothing good, nothing ordered to God, is a “waste” of time.
