I used to play Trivial Pursuit. I love meaningless information. For example, did you know that adults watch twice as much TV as teens? Did you know that at any given time, half of all adults are on a diet? Here’s some more for you. The can opener was invented 48 years after they invented the can.
The most common first name in the world is Mohammed. Every year, 2,500 left handed people die while using products designed for right handed people. The most productive work day is Tuesday. The least productive is Friday. The average person knows 5,500 words. When the temperature hits -41 degrees Fahrenheit, it is also -41 degrees Celsius.
Now, for one more, if you haven’t already turned off your computer or phone. The average person blinks every six seconds, or 250 million times in a lifetime.
Okay, enough for meaningless trivia.
Let’s consider meaningful non-trivia. For example, did you know that God has an incredible plan for your life? He wants to bless you richly, today. He wants to bless you right now! Don’t blink, or you may miss it.
The old prophet said it best. “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
