I thought with Halloween approaching talking about “vampires” would be appropriate. Now, I am not talking about the mythical scary vampires written in novels. I am talking about the people, jobs, hobbies, or event volunteering that is sucking the life out of you.
Take a look at your life right now. Ask yourself a few questions:
- Who am I putting first? Who SHOULD I be putting first?
- What is demanding my time?
- When (certain time of day? certain person? certain conflict?) do I feel a draining of my energy?
- Where (pinpoint and be specific) are these “drains” leading?
- Why do I keep allowing this to happen?
These may be difficult questions to ask yourself. The answers may be hard to hear. But we all need to address “vampires” in our lives. God needs to be first because he supplies “all that we need for the moment”.
