In an interview with Bill Gates, Warren Buffet said, “I can buy anything else, except time.” In the past, every second was measured by sand going through the hourglass.
God has given each one of us a common gift, which is time. So how do we use the time given to us? Time is, perhaps, the most precious commodity we have. Do we waste time by “killing” it? How are we investing our time?
As we begin this new year, we want to look at developing some good time management habits that will bear good fruit in our lives. The first and most important habit we need to begin the year with, is God Time. 20 minutes every day with God is the best investment we can make.
WHAT WILL YOU DO
Spending time in God’s Word isn’t about gaining more knowledge. One thing we understand in this information age is how to absorb a set of facts, but our faith is more than a set of beliefs. It is about getting to know Someone as real as the person next to us and gaining His thoughts and perspectives that will shape our worldview, ultimately transforming us.
We are challenged to spend at least 20 minutes every day with God reading His Word and praying. 20 minutes every day is the best investment you can make for your life.
This 30-day devotional material has been designed for us. We encourage you to use it during your God Time. These 7 steps can guide you.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. – Joshua 1:8 (ESV)
