 Your Use of Time

This devotional was written by Jim Burns

Thou hast made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting. —Psalm 104:19 (RSV)

The greatest commodity you have at your fingertips is time. Everyone has the same amount of time to use or waste today. The happiness in your life depends on how you use your time. Periodically I need to evaluate how I am using my time. This little paragraph helps me keep perspective.

Take time to THINK—it is the source of power.

Take time to PLAY—it is the secret of perpetual youth.

Take time to be FRIENDLY—it is the road to happiness.

Take time to LOVE—it is a God-given privilege.

Take time to READ—it is the fountain of wisdom.

Take time to PRAY—it is the greatest power on Earth.

Take time to LAUGH—it is the music of the soul.

Take time to GIVE—it is too short a day to be selfish.

Take time to WORK—it is the price of success.

GOING DEEPER:

1. Reread Psalm 104:19. What has God created to show us the importance of time?

2. The paragraph above lists a number of ways you could spend your time each day. Take a few minutes to evaluate how you spend your time. Is your time divided appropriately between all of these important areas?
