A couple of months back in my class one of our pastors spoke to us about excellence. He told us as believers we need to commit to excellence, we need to be the best in everything we do. It was very inspirational and motivating when he gave us a list of common sayings that we should live by. One of them read, “Dont ask time where it has gone, but rather tell it where to go.”
How often do we hear people, or even ourselves say, “I just didn’t have the time.” The truth is we have the time, we just have to manage it. We need to tell our time where to go! I believe time management is a huge part of our lives, as well as our walks with Christ. If we want to be excellent in all we do, then we must be in control of the time we have.
Ephesians 5:15-16 says, “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” (ESV). In our walk with Christ, if we do not manage time then much will be lost and over time our relationship with Him will be stagnant. The way we use our time shapes our relationship with Christ.
I hope this post encourages you to be wise with the time you have, and more importantly I hope you are encouraged to commit to the excellence God has called you to.
