Staying this busy is something the plagues our culture. We spend so much time doing things, but are we actually doing anything? That is what I sit back and ask myself at times like this. I really begin to wonder how this affects myself. I begin to think if all this stuff that I'm doing is really making a difference.
I think it's hard at this point to be able to justify not doing some things though. As a college student, if you plan on succeeding after college you have to be preparing yourself for the workforce after graduation. So I spend my time involved with things that are targeted at doing that such thing. These things take up time though and I have to assess how effective I am in each of these markets.
As I assess this I come to find that I may be able to be effective in these places, but am I enacting change? Moreover can I enact change? I believe that what I do is important, but is it something that builds towards the ultimate goal?
I believe that everything a person does can point to Christ. Or at least it should point to Christ. The only way it won't is if it is done in sin. With that I ask myself if I do things out of sin. I believe that at times I do, I mean everyone does at one point or another.
I bring all of this back together and I say that what I'm doing has purpose, that I am leaving my mark in places, however I don't believe that sometimes I forget to point things towards Christ. That part is the most important of all too..
This is where I stand right now.
