Time Is a Treasure

Description

Time is a treasure from Heaven that needs close attention and protection. We number our days so at the end of each day we are satisfied that we were successful for God.

Budget Your Time… There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1

There is enough time to do God’s will, thus He desires a stewardship of time. Just as money can be overspent, so can time. The twenty-four hours in a day, the seven days in a week, and the fifty-two weeks in a year need budget restraints. Some days may go by slowly, but years seem to fly by quickly. A life well spent and prayerfully invested pays dividends for a lifetime and into eternity. But, a chronically reactive life wakes up one day weary, wondering, “What have I done?” 

Therefore, we are wise to lay out a life plan and adjust it over time. We prayerfully modify our calendar regularly so overcommitment does not overcome us. It is much better to have fewer obligations than to find ourselves emotionally and physically spent—unable and unwilling to follow through. Time is a treasure from heaven that needs close attention and protection. We number our days, so at the end of each day, we are satisfied that we were successful for God. By God’s grace we manage our calendar or it will manage us. We trust the Lord to lead us along His timetable. 

“I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly” (Isaiah 60:22b).
