Redeem the time

When life gets busy it is easy to waste time on things that don’t really matter.  Wasting time is when nothing beneficial comes from the time spent, and in our christian walk, anything that doesn’t get us in the direction of our Goal.

Among many time wasters, the worst would be surfing the Internet without purpose (facebook…), electronics (TV, Movies, & Video games), media  (texting…), pointless conversations, lounging and daydreaming/worrying.  Some of these past times don’t interest me, some do.  By identifying what tempts me most, i can have the power the fight the temptation of wasting time when i could be focusing on growing closer to God.

I can’t expect to use my time wisely if i don’t prioritize.  If i make myself a schedule, i can make conscience decisions on how to spend my time.  I also need to practise self-control, so that i can limit my time.  By concentrating on what i do and multi-tasking at the same time, i will have more time for God.  When i have time to wait, I have time to pray.

I can redeem the time of my youth years by doing as much as possible for the ministry.  That is something that i will never forget.  I can also make wise decisions for the future such as health, education, career,  and who i am friends with.

Therefore He says:  “ Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. –Ephesians 5: 14-17
