Ecclesiastes 10:1-12:14; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15; Psalm 49:1-20; Proverbs 22:20-21

You cannot be a wise person if you do not manage well all the resources that have been given to you. The most precious asset you’ve been given is time. There is so much that remains undone because of our misuse of time. Time is so valuable that we only get a certain amount of it. God is so strategic that He not only gave you a purpose but He also gave you enough time to accomplish everything He called you to do. 

Time can be wasted in two ways: through laziness and too much leisure. Laziness is not producing at a maximum level. While we cannot run at 100% all the time, we should schedule our week so that there are times when we produce at a high level. Then there are times when we need to take some time off, or rest (The Bible calls this Sabbath). The other way that we misuse time is that we spend too much time resting and relaxing that we don’t accomplish anything. Hours, days, weeks and months go by and important tasks remain incomplete. 

See your life as meaningful and important. Endeavor to do everything God has assigned you to do. “Laziness leads to a sagging roof; idleness leads to a leaky house.”
