Colossians 4:5 “Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.”
A clock and owls.
Time and wisdom.
God is good and sometimes very straight forward if we are looking and listening.
This photo was taken in the living room as I sat watching TV and attempting to distract myself from the to-do list looming. Our daughter will be married next Saturday and the list is getting shorter but still a bit daunting.
I find myself often saying ‘there’s not enough hours in the day.’ Not just while planning a wedding. Many times this phrase fills my soul during the weeks I have said yes too many times or the activities of our crew seem to have multiplied.
But, in the book of Genesis we see that on the fourth day, God placed two great lights in the sky to rule over the day and the night. And He saw that it was good.
The number of hours in our day are designed by God. They are good. The way we choose to spend those hours – well that’s where the not-so-good comes in.
He designed our days and nights and gave us ‘things to do.’ He then gave us the words of the Bible to guide us on how to spend our time. We are to spend it loving our neighbors, honoring our parents, telling the world about our savior. He excepts us to be good stewards of our hands, minds, hearts and money. I believe that He expects equal stewardship with our time.
Are there items on your to-do list that should be eliminated or abbreviated? Maybe it’s social media time or Netflix. It could be any number of things and vary by the day or week. If we ask Him to help identify the best way to spend our – or honestly, His time- it will be good.
