A sense of loss
November 21, 2006 3 Comments
I have a problem. I thirst. I thirst for Scripture. There is always (it seems) before me this desire to always be studying and exploring God Revealed Word. I assume that all of my brothers and sisters have this problem, but I don’t know since I haven’t asked. Maybe it’s a rare condition.
I get this nagging feeling that I missed something after watching some ‘big event’ on TV. It’s more evident after spending hours and hours playing Civilization III.
A sense of loss that I get after other time-wasting endeavours I choose to partake in. Entertainment has its purpose and place but why does it seem like I waste time when I do these things? Not only that but why the sense that I could have spent that time in the Word?
It was especially evident last night after watching Michael Richards’ “must-see” apology on Letterman last night. I interrupted a study of Acts to catch the apology and perhaps paid the price because it wasn’t the same after I resumed.Anyone know what I’m talking about?
