Time Management and God

An odd title for a blog posting, when you consider that if God were to come to earth in some corporeal form, we would not see a watch on his right wrist (the left-hander in me likes to think of God as a southpaw). Watches are for those who are restricted to 24-hour days. God is above time. 2 Peter 3:8 tells us a thousand years is but a day to God, and a day is like a thousand years.

I imagine it like this: God can see every single event in human history happening at the same time. To humanity, we’ve been around for thousands of years. To God, it’s irrelevant.

That being said, since we are bound by time, it’s best to make the most of it.

Very difficult, indeed. I often succeed at getting up and reading my Bible, but often I fail. Procrastination is my weak spot, and, admittedly, I loathe getting up early in the morning. At college, when I’d try to read the Bible on a few hours sleep, I’d end up reading the same sentence over and over and over and over again.

What is the solution?

Get sleep and purpose that before your day begins, you will make time for God. Even if it means cutting back on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or other distractions.

God wants to spend time with us, to reveal Himself to us, and when we don’t make the time to spend time with God, I believe it hurts God far more than we can possibly imagine.

Richard Zowie has many opinions on Christianity, some of which just might be correct. Post comments here or e-mail them to richardstwoshekels@gmail.com.
