Back to School

So i had a 3 day rest and now i am off to Indiana Wesleyan University to be the chaplain for my dorm... excited and ready... and yet still craving surfing like it is nobody's business! But it is something to keep in check. Could surfing be considered an idol in my life?!? Is the amount of time and thought i put into surfing more than i put into my relationship with God? Welp back to school. God I commit this year to you and help me to put you first.
Proverbs 16:3 "Commit whatever you do to the Lord and your plans will succeed."

BD - Good to see you're back for another year at IWU! Keep surfing buddy!

Just a thought...maybe quit questioning and wondering if everything is an idol and measuring everything by how many thoughts you have about _______ vs. your relationship with God! You'll drive yourself crazy man! If you keep living this way...marriage is going to kill you.

Be careful of letting evangelicalism (all about personal relationship, everything can be an idol, spend more time with/thinking about God than everything else, only think about eternity) drive out what may matter most to God (your heart, your love for the people around you, your generosity, the fruits of the spirit, etc).

What do you think?
