I observed from reading this verse that, what we invest our time in is what we love the most. If we are investing our time in other things, things of this earth that will have no eternal benefits we are waisting our time.
We can apply this verse to our lives by investing our time in things on this earth that will produce eternal benefits. Because after all, isn't that why we are here? To serve God and love others? If we are, "busy" doing anything else we are shooting an empty gun, we aren't making an impact eternally and are wasting our breath. When we get to heaven God won't ask us, "What have you done with your years of college education? Or degree?" Or, "How succesful have you become?" The question will be, "What have you done with Jesus?"
Dear God, don't let me see my life at an external level. Help my eyes to see past what's in front of me. Help me to impact eternity so I can enjoy those benefits eternally. Where moth and rust will never destroy them and where thieves won't steal them. Help me to invest my time in what really matters. Impacting eternity. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
