you’re full time something

You’re “full-time” something…..

Here are a list of some of my “full-time” jobs that are HARD to do full-time… but have extreme rewards.

  • Worshiper
  • Husband
  • Father
  • Friend
  • Good Example
  • Integrity
  • pray

Things that come easy to do “full-time”, or are just easy to do” and can have very little rewards (if at all) :

  • workaholic-ism
  • short temper
  • Hobbies
  • worry
  • laziness
  • Internet
  • gossip
  • criticism

So here is the verse that I am led to… and my reflection tonight has led me to this “how do I continue to end up doing the list that I don’t want to do, and has the least reward?!”

I encourage you to reflect, and share some of the things you find easy or hard to do… in the comments below, in an email, to your spouse, or a close friend.

Romans 7:15-25

15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature[b] a slave to the law of sin.
