“Be careful, then, how you live – not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time.” – Ephesians 5:15-16a

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR TIME

Do you ever feel like there’s just not enough time in each day? Well, remember we all have the same amount of time: one hundred sixty-eight hours a week, twenty-four hours a day. The key is making the most of our time. This is a spiritual, as well as practical, issue.

Scripture says, “Be careful, then, how you live, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time.” So how do you do that? List the top three to five priorities of your life. This list will help you prioritize how you spend your time.

Concentrate on what’s most important, and focus on those things. As you approach each day, write down the most important thing you need to do, commit to do it, then go to the second most important thing and so on.

In order to live the successful life, effective time management is a key discipline. So, how will you start prioritizing your life? Perhaps the first step is simply paying attention to what consumes most of your time. Start there and ask God for help building the discipline of time management. Life is short – are you making the most of yours?
