The average life span for someone living in the US is 78 and 3/4 years. That’s approximately 28,744 days, 689,856 hours, and 41,391,360 minutes. That’s a lot of living! But how are you living? What do you do with the time you’ve been given? How are you using the days God has given you?
In Job 14:5 we read, “A person’s days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.” God has set a time limit on everyone’s life and your time is running out! What are you doing with they years, months, hours and minutes you’ve been given?
As Andy Stanley says, “Far more important that what time it is, is what you are doing with your time.” If, as followers of Jesus, we are to be wise stewards of everything God has given us, we need to include time on that list of everything. Are you managing your time well?
It really does matter what you do with your time. In this series we’ve been asking the question: In light of my past experience, my current circumstances, and my future hopes and dreams, what’s the wise thing to do? This week we added the time element to that question. In light of my past experience, my current circumstances, and my future hopes and dreams, what’s the wise thing to do with my time? Where do you need to begin making consistent deposits of your time so that things are different for you spiritually, relationally, financially, with your health?
Ask these questions, hear what God has to say in response to those questions, and then act on what He says! “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16 NASB
