10 More Minutes!

The alarm goes off. How do you respond? I confess I often hit the snooze button. It gives me 10 more minutes! Sometimes I hit the snooze button more than once. 10 minutes turns into 20 or 30. Sleep is good and a gift from God, but we can become lazy and unproductive. I am reminded of Proverbs 24:33-34, “A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.” An extra 10 minutes here and there can rob you of precious time. What if you took back those 10 snoozing minutes over the course of one week? You would get back 1 hour and 10 minutes. Just think of what you could do with that extra time. You could spend time praying, catching up on the news, or enjoying a cup of coffee with a loved one. Do you really need 10 extra minutes of sleep? Redeem those extra 10 minutes. Stop snoozing and start living!
