The 21st Century Limited Good: Time

The most precious commodity that an individual has is time.  What makes time so precious is the fact that once you give it you can't get it back. We live in a world where time is a limited resource but there are countless demands for our time.  Life in a the ministry presents many difficulties of how to manage this precious commodity both efficiently and effectively.  Time so little of it yet so much to do with it. Time the 21st Century limited good.  Perhaps this is why people are so upset when they are in a relationship and it doesn't work out the first thing they say is "I wasted my time."   Time so precious that we live in the time where if a local church doesn't show sensitivity to this precious commodity they lose membership.  Time the excuse that we often use when we failed to fellowship with God.  We say I just don't have the time!  I would like to suggest to you a few things that this precious commodity reveals about us:

  1. Time reveals to us what we deem important!  In other words time shows us where our priorities lie.
  2. Time reveals to us where are inefficiencies lie.  In other words time shows us the things in our lives we are either devoting to much time to or those things we are not devoting enough time to.
The question becomes what does your time say about relationship with God?  What does your time say about your priorities?  Time and money are directly correlated in a lot of ways but one obvious way is in priorities.  Show me where you spend your money and I will show where your heart is!  Show me where you spend your time and I will show you where your heart is!  The Good Book declares that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.  What do you with this 21st Century limited good?

Scripture Reference: Ecclesiastes: 3:1
