Sowing and Reaping
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
Most Christians are familiar with the principle of sowing and reaping as it applies to giving -- though few really believe it.
That same principle applies to sharing time in the Lord’s work. Just as God can multiply the fruits of our labor, He can also multiply the use of our time. Any good administrator knows that ten minutes spent in productive planning is more valuable than two hours spent in confusion and frustration.
Therefore, one of the first things a busy, frustrated, overworked Christian needs to do is to dedicate the best part of the day, week, month, and year to the Lord.
To do so will mean reordering priorities at work and at home to allow for time alone with God.
No other goals are going to be meaningful until the first and most important one is settled: your relationship with God.
