Daily Devotion: A Tip About Time

Bible Reading: Ephesians 5:6-16

Key Verse: Verse 16 - “Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Key Words: Redeeming the time

How we spend our time tells us as much about ourselves as how we spend our money.
  • When as a child I laughed and wept, time crept.
  • When as a youth I dreamed and talked, time walked.
  • When I became a full-grown man, time ran.
  • And later as I older grew, time flew.
  • Soon I shall find while traveling on, time gone.
If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,000 that carried over no balance from day to day, allowed you to keep no cash in your account, and every evening cancelled whatever part of the amount you failed to use during the day, what would you do?

You would draw out every cent every day, of course, and use it to your advantage! Well, you have such a bank, and its name is TIME! Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it rules off as lost whatever of time you failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balances and allows no overdrafts. Each day it opens a new account with you. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against tomorrow.

What to do:
✞We are always complaining that our days are few, but we live as though there is no end to life. Remember, the testimony of your life is found in how you spend your time.
