Don’t Lose Your Time, Invest It

We all have limited time. And the thing is… no one knows how much time they really have! So how are you using your time?

Are you using it, or losing it? Are you investing it into something good and lasting, or are you spending your time on things that are passive (like consuming tv or social media)?

I don’t want to make this a sermon, so I’ll keep it short.

If we want to live theologically, we need to think theologically about how we use our time. Read more books, pray more, make joy-filled living a priority.

Spend less time complaining and more time writing “Thank You” notes. Make more phone calls, and send fewer emails and text messages.

How are you spending your time? Your time DOES reflect your priorities, whether you care to acknowledge that or not. Sure, you may have convictions about how you should spend your time and about what your priorities should be… but take a look at how you actually spend your time, and ask yourself if you’re pleased with the priorities in your actual life. 

If you don’t like what you see then make one change at a time. Pick one priority a month, and sustain the changes you make until you’re actual life matches what you think you “should” be doing.

The time is short. Invest your time to make much of Christ.

Only one life,
T’will soon be past.
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
C.T. Studd
