Spare time?

Where did we come up with this concept of "spare time," anyway? Is there any time for which we aren't accountable to God? Is there any time during which God doesn't care what you are doing? No Christian has ever had spare time. You may have spare time from labor or necessity, you may stop working and refresh yourself, but no Christian ever had time off from living like a Christian.  —William Law, Christian Perfection, a contemporary version by Marvin D. Hinten.

Ephesians 5:15-16 (NLT2) 15  So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16  Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
