Are You Being Productive?

“Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.”‭‭Titus‬ ‭3:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬ http://bible.com/111/tit.3.14.niv

Is your life unproductive? If so what is keeping it that way? We as a society are becoming to caught up in time wasters. These time wasters include social media, games on our phones, reality television and things that cause us to focus on that instead of being productive. 

Think about how much time you spend on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other. The amount of time might surprise you. What if instead of social media you used that time to do something productive? Tiu cod read a book. You could build something. You could start a new hobby. Think about the last time you saw a post that was so amazing that you are glad you saw it. 

We must learn to do something good. If you took the time you spend on social media you might be able to learn a new skill. That new skill might allow you to get promoted or even a job. What is something you have always wanted to do but do not have the time? I have always wanted to write a book. I have got a good start on my first book. 

Another urgent need that you need to tend to is your family. Do you come home in the evening and spend time on social media? I know I would as I am watching television. Neither was productive for me. Spending time with the family, who I neglected a little while in school, is a lot more important. 

As a society I think we could have a little less social media. I think we could devote ourselves to more productive things.

  1. You are right. And if the time we spend on social media is to do the work we are called to do, then social media is worth it.
    What I find bad is this thing of spending hours just posting pictures of oneself and looking at others’ pictures.
    How does it really help make the world a better place.
    And sometimes the pictures are stark blatantly negative and polluting.
