Brad Dickson, a sportswriter for the Omaha World-Herald, took note of the fact that the Army football team has a junior wide receiver named Edgar Allan Poe. Dickson said, “If he’s the only Edgar Allan Poe you’ve heard of, you may want to watch a little less football.”
There is certainly nothing wrong with watching sports or having hobbies. However, there is a danger of spending too much time on such interests, even to the point of being distracted from what God wants us to do.
We need to make sure that we take time to focus on Jesus and our mission to serve him.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”—Mathew 6:33.
