Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Time is not only precious it is fleeting. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on how intentional I am with investing my time. I cringe when I think about all the time I’ve wasted in the past, whether it be on the phone, surfing the internet, watching t.v. or just through procrastination. We are given a set number of hours in the day to accomplish God’s work and those minutes can easily slip through our fingers if we aren’t careful.
This 2 part broadcast series, by Charles Stanley, “Dealing with the Pressure of Time,” is a perfect reminder to reflect on how we choose to spend our time.
Jesus was only here for 33 short years and what he accomplished in those 3 years of his ministry was an incredible testimony of a life well spent. None of us know how long we will walk this earth, but, while we are here have 24 hours in a day, no more or less to use it in a way that adds to the body of Christ and enriches our lives and the lives around us. When I listened to this broadcast, I asked myself 3 questions:
1) What distractions cause me to use my time unwisely?
2) What does using my time wisely look like in my life?
3) What do I do everyday to be intentional about how I spend my time?
Most importantly how does God fit into my day and am I making time for Him?
Hope you enjoy the broadcast!
