"Passing the time" may sound like a bit much, and there's no doubt that our mission as Christians is to always be prepared to share the Gospel and do our best to plant seeds to bring as many people to Christ as possible before it's too late. And we all know that time is running short. In our everyday lives, however, we need occasional rest and recuperation. Most of us haven't been blessed with the energy to be on-point and preaching the Good News on a 24/7 basis, and we need diversions. It may be cooking. Or knitting. Or playing golf. Or writing a book. What do you do as a "diversion" to rest, recuperate, gather your thoughts, and prepare yourself mentally and physically to meet the opportunities and challenges that God puts before you? Personally, my hobby is ham radio and antique radio restoration. Bringing an old radio to life is a satisfying, fun, and worthwhile adventure that provides helpful focus time and welcome relief. And it's a constant that can't be undone by the lunatic radicals.
