December 4, 2019 BEING GOOD STEWARDS OF TIME
Managing our time is pretty important this time of year because we are scheduling parties, shopping and attending our children’s events. We are working, continuing to manage the household and trying to keep from getting stressed. Being good stewards of our time is important. A good steward uses time wisely. We do that by knowing what is important and doing those things first. God is the most important part of our lives. Giving Him the first of our time every day will help us get everything else done.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (KJV)
1. Write what you do first every day.
2. List ways you manage your time.
3. Know God wants to be the first part of your day.
4. Remember to go to Him in all things – all day long.
Dear Lord, we know we tend to spend the most time on what we want to do the most. It may be television, news, games, family, sports, etc. However, we also know our time spent with You is the best investment for our spiritual growth and for eternity. Help us to put You first in our day in the morning, at noon and at night. We want to better manage our time according to Your will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
We are to start our mornings with Jesus and ask Him how to make the best use of our time for the day.
Mark 1:35 “Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray.” (NLT)
To make the best use of our time, we should do all we do for God’s glory.
1 Corinthians 10:31 “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (NLT)
When we take time for God, He will give us all we need to get everything else done.
Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.” (NLT)
