The post below deals with being mature and using your time wisely. This post has some good advice from the good folks at desiringgod.org on the best use of your internet time. For many of you this is old information, but some of us are still checking sites one-by-one, ahem.
Anyway, it's good advice for me and/or anyone else who needs it.
I checked on this book at Barnes and Noble the other day and it looks like it comes out in August. The post I link to mentions that had I remembered it. Anyway it looks like an important book.
For me, I'm afraid I'm often more childish than is healthy. I don't think of myself as a grown-up, but rather, as that college kid who lived at "The Ranch" in the sloppy room.
Then I read this the other day: "Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil." (Eph 5:15-16, ESV)
Making the best use of the time - how does one judge that? Clearly, for the Christian, the Bible is the place to get your marching orders, your priotities - God, your family, your soul, those kinds of priorities.
Earlier, Kathy and I had discussions with our 17-year-old son about his use of time and that, get this, he's not a kid anymore, he needed to act more mature. I sure hope I was listening.
The deal is, time is short and we, I, don't have time for childish pursuits.
