Ephesians 4:5 “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time”
We have all heard the saying, “Time is money.”
Most likely you heard it from a manager or executive. Maybe, you heard it in a movie. Some type-A work absorbed man explaining to his angered wife that he missed their son’s baseball game, or was an hour late for their daughter’s recital, because “Time is money.” However, by the end of the film, he has abandoned his workaholic ways to spend time with his family, but perhaps only after a tragedy has shaken his worldview.
We are all moved, because we understand that time is, in fact, more valuable than money.
You can make more money, not time.
As you age, money loses value, not time.
You can borrow money, not time.
Money is being made every day, not time.
No, time is not money. It is far more valuable than money. There is a truth in the saying that a person’s spending tells what is important to them.
So, what are you going to do with the 1440 minutes on your account today.
Will you spend 5 minutes on pursuing God and 120 catching up on your 2 shows? Will you spend 180 watching a ball game, or 300 if you drive to and from the game, and then spend 15 on prayer? Will Facebook get 50 and God’s book get 10? Will talking about your favorite politician get 20, but talking about Jesus get 2? Will your hobby get 100 but your spouse 10 and your kids 5?
Time is not money.
So, be careful how you invest it.
