Don’t Waste Your Life


Reading James Hamilton’s commentary on Revelation, I came across these lyrics by Lecrae from Don’t Waste Your Life. You can watch the full video above. What Lecrae has to say is powerful. It is something we should all consider. 

Don’t Waste Your Life

Your money your singleness marriage talent and time
They were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
That’s why it’s Christ in my rhymes
That’s why it’s Christ all the time
See my whole world is built around him
He’s the life in my lines I refuse to waste my life
He’s too true to chase that ice
Here’s my gifts and time
Cause I’m constantly trying
To be used to praise the Christ

Questions for Reflection

  1. Are you wasting your life?
  2. Do you see a life not lived for Christ as a wasted life?


Lecrae, “Don’t Waste Your Life,” from the album Rebel, Central South District, 2008.
