Many of us find ourselves wasting time, which is our most precious commodity. When combined through a week (or a life) we spend thousands of hours doing senseless things and wonder why we don’t get the most important things done.
Just think of wasting 2 hours a day on something mindless and worthless (which is easy to do). That’s 14 hours a week (almost two whole workdays!) Over a year that’s 730 hours, or 91 8-hr workdays! 3 full months of workdays are wasted!
As a consequence, we accomplish far less than our lives were designed to do. Does God have anything to say about time management?
GOD’S PLAN FOR OUR TIME
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:15-18)
"You have all the time you need to gracefully do everything God asks you to do," I once heard Adrian Rogers say. The problem is, we are doing many things that God is not leading us to do. Imagine what could be accomplished in God's kingdom if every believer redeemed the time!
One day very soon we will stand and give an account before God of all the days/hours that He had ordained for us. “To whom much is given, much is required.” May He find us good stewards that have filled each hour with God-initiated steps for His purposes and glory.
