How Do You Use Your Time?

God tells us to use our time “not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17). This means take great care in how you live. Live responsibly and wisely. Make the most of every minute by making the best use of your time.

You can’t afford to be reckless with your days and hours, to make poor choices about how you spend time. Your time is your life, and you’re on assignment from God. You have a purpose. You were saved to serve. And you are God’s workmanship, created in Christ for good works (Ephesians 2:10).

Seek to use your golden, God-given minutes on what really matters, not on worldly pursuits and purposes. An exceptional woman wrote this principle: You can never kill time without injuring eternity.
