A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, April 20


Romans 6:20-23


When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

It is hard to give up bad habits. God wants me a slave to Him, but there are some habits I have trouble breaking free of. There is no “benefit” to reap from them. That are small things, probably not considered “sins” by many. They are energy wasting, time wasting and don’t help me or anyone else. What holds me to these sins? When do I ever look back and say, “That was a great hour I just spent playing games on my phone. I am certainly a better person for that!”


Father above, forgive me for my sins. I am trying to be the best I can be, but sometimes I forget. Sometimes I feel hurt and want to lash out. Sometimes I am tired and bored and

just ”waste time”. Help me to see my sins for what they are: useless waste. Amen
