Time. It’s a funny thing. One time I can look at the clock and it seems like every minute is an hour and another time it’s like the hour hands on the clock are spinning out of control ( ok I’m old – I’m talking about the
old fashioned non-digital ones). Like just now. I had 15 minutes before leaving for work. I sat down at the computer to start this post and wham, time was gone. Sometimes I wish I could bottle up time.
When we think of being good stewards with what God has given us, we tend to think of money. But really, time is our most valuable resource. No amount of money can make up for time lost. Time spent with loved ones is priceless.
Time is an equalizer because we all have the same amount in a day. Some people are just better managers of time than others. How well do we allocate our time to what is really important? If we judge what is important to us based on the time we spend on it, what would be at the top of our list? Most certainly time with God is absolutely necessary if we are to be in obedience to Him.
Are we making the best use of the precious time God has allotted to us, whatever that will be? We aren’t promised tomorrow so let’s choose today how our hours will be spent for the purpose for which He created us and to His glory. After all it’s really His time, not ours. If we could put our time in a bottle and offer it up to God would it have a sweet aroma to Him?
2 Corinthians 2:15 For we are a sweet aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
Psalm 90:12 Teach us how short our life is, so that we may become wise.
