Economize Your Time and Energy

Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right, for there is a time and a way for everything… Ecclesiastes 8:5-6 (NLT)

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day.  Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course.  Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.  Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.  Every night it writes off as a loss whatever remaining amount you failed to invest toward a good purpose.  It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.  If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.”  You must live in the present on today’s deposit. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!  The clock is running!! Make the most of today.

God, forgive me for not investing my time properly.  Show me the areas where I need to stop wasting my time.  Show me where to invest my time wisely.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
