How do you spend your free time?

How do many of us spend our free time (assuming we have any free time)? Do you collapse on the couch and watch television? Do you feel guilty that you are not doing anything? John Ortberg has some thoughts on this especially what he says about musing (random musings, get it?)

Time Well Wasted

Most pastors don't waste enough time.

At least that's my conviction. But wasting time well is an acquired skill, because there is good wasting and there is bad wasting. Bad time wasting is the hang around/watch TV/perform random online search kind that leaves you with less life than you started with. You may be doing it right now. I don't need to say any more about that, except to stop.

The good kind of time-wasting will actually lead you to be more connected with God and more full of life. But it's hard to engage in, because there are always more pressing matters. This isn't really wasting time, of course, but our culture makes it feel as though it is.
