Paul tells us in Ephesians that we need to make sure we're walking circumspectly - which is the accuracy that comes from extreme carefulness. We need to be paying close attention to detail. Think about what Jesus said about the gate. You're not going to find the way unless you're determined to find it!
We can't let ourselves get too caught up with the things of this world. Think about what Paul says in Philippians 3 - He forgot the things of the earth. There's only one thing that this walk is for. - The one thing is to keep the one thing the one thing.
The point of all this is this; that we need to make the best of our time and make sure we're making time for the things that really matter. Sometimes we need to step back and re-evaluate how we're using our time to make sure that God is right in the center of it all.
