“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens …” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, NIV)

Our work is generally performed according to a schedule. Larger projects have a detailed schedule that outlines the activities and events that are linked together for the duration of the project. It’s easy to see the order of each task. A good schedule also allows us to visualize the completion of each activity and the entire project.

We often experience life in a similar way. When we stop to think about it, we realize that we are on a critical path – we choose the activities that fill our time. We understand that there are milestones in our lives that define how we view the world around us. We have little trouble seeing how our actions impact others and how various events shape the future. In life, however, we rarely see what is coming next, and we have absolutely no idea when our time on earth will end.

“What do workers gain from their toil? … I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil – this is the gift of God.” (Ecclesiastes 3:9, 12-13, NIV)

Ecclesiastes points out two important aspects about time. First, there is a proper time for everything in our lives – doing the right thing at the right time brings incredible results. Second, God wants us to be satisfied with the way we spend our time – including our time at work.

To a large extent, what we do with our time defines who we are. We can spend our days tearing others down and living solely for ourselves, or we can spend our time developing a closer relationship with our Savior. Every minute of every day is a “gift of God”.

Schedule a little time this Tuesday with the Lord! You’ll be glad you did!

  1. Hey Dave, I was thinking that Franklin Covey was the creator of the Time Management system. I was way wrong… Absolutely loved your post this morning!!! Take Care and God Bless 🙂 Kenny T PS: Make sure you check out the Grove Park Inn when you go to the Biltmore Estates. Along with an evening meal at the Biltmore Bistro.

    Time Crunch? Wonder why…


  3. God gave us 24 hours a day, therefore we should give back at the least 2.4 hours per day in His Word and the rest praying , praising and thanking HIM. Beautiful piece on time.:)
