Living Life to the Fullest: NOT—den Boer

Where are you living your life? Are you living where only worldly things matter? Or, are you living where eternal kingdom things matter most?
Or, are you living in the virtual world? I’m ashamed to admit I’ve been living life at a Wii level for the past few weeks.

I’ve been pedaling a bike at the Wii Resort, trying desperately to earn all the stamps. I’ve conquered the six individual races, and the two three-day races, but not the six-day race. The six-day race takes 20 minutes to complete. I’ve been pedaling it about twice a day for at least the past six days.

This has become more than a simple distraction. I go to sleep seeing my Wii Mii on a bike. I wake up thinking, “Today I will conquer the bike race.”

What a pathetic goal.

I reckon the expressed shame about your present preoccupation with Wii biking is likely less shame for you, than my shame for not having been on my eliptical trainer for weeks, now! :)
An honest lead-in to the challenge for spiritual fruitfulness. Thank you.
