Three Steps to Stop Wasting Your Life

Three Steps to Stop Wasting Your Life

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5–6)

Every day, you and I will be tempted to waste the precious life God has given us. The book of Proverbs is filled with wisdom to help us navigate these daily pressures and impulses. Proverbs 3:5–6 — two of the most popular verses in the Bible — offer three steps for experiencing as much of God’s grace as possible today.

Step 1: Bank your life on the promises of God.

Step 2: Refuse to be self-reliant.

Step 3: At every turn, turn to God.

In this three-minute video, John Piper continues his series, in partnership with YouVersion, through the Bible’s ten most-highlighted passages. With these verses, he wants you to avoid wasting your life by staying in the path of God’s grace and purpose for you.
