World over, many people are aware of the concept of Time but are not really cognizant of its significance. One would think that the desire to always know what the time is, would translate to knowing what to do with time (and doing it), but this is not always the case.
Psalms 90:12“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
Ephesians 6:15-17“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is”
From the above portions, there is an identifiable connection between the proper application of time and Wisdom. One of the ways that we display the Wisdom of God in us, is how we use our time. Ephesians 6:17 makes it clear, that it is when we know the will of God, that we can be wise, and thus use our time wisely. In other words, whatever you do outside the will of God for a season, does not further His purpose, is a waste of time and is foolishness.
What have you done with the free time you’ve been given? Time is not on anyone’s side. Time is not even on time’s side. With every passing second, you get a second closer to when time becomes of no significance to you. How much of purpose have you achieved? In the time for gathering stones and building structure for the coming times, don’t be found scattering stones. Everything will only be beautiful in its time if it is done in season.
There’s a quote I read somewhere, about time management, and it always rings in my head:
“The bad news is, Time Flies. The good news is, You are the pilot!!”.
At the end of the day, how your time flies depends on you. If you’ve not been spending (or flying) your time well so far, make a change. Seek God for coordinates. Find His will, and determine to spend your lifetime accomplishing the same. That’s how to live a life of wisdom.
Time marches on. From one season to another. Don’t be left behind.
