If We Could Put Time in a Bottle


God wants us to be good stewards of our time—and our starting point is knowing why we're here.

...(the Lord) has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity." -2 Timothy 1:9

Do you hear the clock ticking? Time keeps moving on. It never stops for anyone, no matter how important you are. We just can’t find enough of that stuff. The late Jim Croce sang about bottling time, and if it could be put in a bottle, I imagine time would be a best-selling product! But one thing’s for sure — God wants us to be good stewards of our time, and the starting point is knowing why each of us is here.

Consider these steps in finding the answer to why we are here:

  • Ask God to help you develop a life-purpose statement. It will take some time, but it’s the best time you’ll ever invest. Know why you’re here.
  • Decide each day what’s most important for you to do that day, and do it. By having a clear purpose, and doing the most important thing each day, God can revolutionize your life and help you make the most of your time.

Whatever you do, please don’t give up. There is no question that God has a purpose for your life, but sometimes God speaks in a still, small voice.  Listen. You’ll be glad you did.
