Today’s Verse

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:15-16

Friday, November 11

Including today’s verse, the Bible has this to say about time management: since you know the meaning of life – that you are made, by God and for God and you know He has a purpose and plan for your life and you were made to relate to Him – you should live life with a sense of responsibility. The result of it is: “Make the best use of your time.”   

How do I find time for the things that are the most important in life? We need to realize that there are three enemies that thwart you, three barriers that prevent you from finding time for the most important things.   

  1. Unclear values: we get too busy and we forget what is important.  
  2. Unrealistic expectations: we try to do too much.  
  3.  Unsustained energy: we get tired.  

In spite of spending more time at home than in recent years, many of you are emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically drained. You are tired! Your idyllic box has been run over, smashed! You know someone who is or has been sick. We all know people who have died from COVID, lost their jobs, struggling to pay the higher cost to live, etc. 

All of us are subject to human weakness, but we need divine strength. Let’s find it!

"Remember God’s bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!"
