TIME KEEPS ON SLIPPING
(SLIPPING, SLIPPING…INTO THE FUTURE)
Back from the hectic holiday season, this week Sandy and Elisabeth discuss starting your New Year off right by acknowledging exactly how much time you don’t have and what to do with the time that we do have.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO WITH OUR TIME?
EPHESIANS [2:10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
MATTHEW 22: 37-40 And he (Jesus) said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
These verses are valid, full answers to the questions of what we’re supposed to do with our time.
HOW MUCH TIME DO WE HAVE?
So how much “productive” time do you have in a day? Obviously, your personal results will vary, but for working adults that go to a 9-5 , they’re only productive for around 3 hours.
HOW DO WE DECIDE WHAT TO DO?
EPHESIANS [5:15]-17 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.
Paul is admonishing us to be WISE with the time we have, and to KNOW what the will of the Lord is.
So when you commit to something, ask yourself, is this wise? Is this what God would have me commit to right now?
Pray about it. When you look at your schedule, make a cup of coffee, sit with God, and go “What do you need me to Cut. Where should I let go? Where should I help more? Where should I build blanks into my schedule, so I can be available?”
