We all have the same amount of time, but we often say to ourselves, Oh if I just had more time, I could. . . . . .
We will never have any more time. We have now, and we have always had, all the time there is to have.
So the next thing for us to learn is how to prioritize our time. Every so often, ask yourself, am I killing my time or making my time count? Am I managing my time or just being active.
Lost time can never be found again and when it is gone it is gone! The older we get the faster time seems to fly by, so take charge of your time.
Most likely, once we understand common sense and wisdom sense about time, we can use our time more effectively and this will reveal to us whether we have made good use of our time.
Our time is the most valuable thing that we can spend and we need to spend it on something that will outlast our time.
Scripture says that we are to spend some of our time to lay up treasures in heaven and that even a cup of cold water given in the right spirit will be rewarded, Matthew 10:42.
We are to spend some time reading and learning godly wisdom and how to be obedient to God’s Commands. His wisdom is more precious than rubies or fine gold.
Wisdom can give us paths of peace and keep us from evil. It can give us a heart of love, compassion and integrity. It will help us to perceive understanding and knowledge, “Real Truth” and mercy, Proverbs 3:5-6.
It will provide us with integrity if we choose to accept it. It means we are a person of moral principles, honesty, sincerity, truthfulness, fairness, and trustworthy.
The person who has a True Christian Spirit is someone who has spent time with God in Prayer and in His Word and lets it penetrate their soul. This will bring out the best in them because it is what will guide their words and actions.
When we take time to be better, (to surpass, exceed, or improve to a greater extent), we will enjoy better times.
The Psalmist says that he will take time, seven times a day, to Praise God for His righteousness, and he loves to obey His commands, Psalms 119:164 & 167.
