The only thing that we are given that is common to everyone, is time. we all are from different background, different race, height, pigmentation, size, different ethnic backgrounds, different economic strata, from different cultures. But one thing we all have in common, is time. Why is this so important? Because what we are and what we become depends on how we use our time. The rich and the poor both have 24hours everyday. The billion and the beggar both have 24 hours everyday. Isn’t that amazing. Time cannot be stopped. You cannot stop a day, you cannot stop an hour, not even a minute or second. Time has no respect for anyone. The good news is you can control on how it will be used. Which simply means that even though time is unstoppable, it is controllable. And what we do with it, determines what we become.
Do you use your time effectively? Time is determined, time has some limitations. Ecclesiastes 8:6 – for there is a proper time and procedure for every matter under heaven. In other words, there is a proper time and way to do everything. Time is the only commodity on earth given to every human being. We all do not possess the same amount of money, but we possess the same amount of time. Time is a currency. That is why we say things like, “spending time”. we spend time like we spend money. Treat your time like money. How you spend your time, what you spend your time on and who you spend your time with matters. You cannot control time, but you can control how it will be used.
