Have you wasted your time?
Do you feel like you have wasted your time? if you are Christian, then you absolutely need to understand this. But if you’re not a Christian, consider this message as a time management motivational teaching.
So, do you feel like you are wasting your time on earth? Are you just passing by? God gave us time as a resource.
The Bible says redeem the time for the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16).
It’s time for you to redeem the lost time. The word redeem means to buy back what was lost. God is asking us that we should treat time as currency. You may be able to make up for the lost money or the lost revenue, but you cannot make up for the lost time because as time passes, everything goes with it. You cannot get back yesterday today. It’s very important, as a believer in Christ, to understand that your time on earth is a small part of eternity. Your earthly journey is a small blip of eternity. What does the Bible say about the lifespan of a person on earth? It says that the life of a man or woman on earth is three score and ten (about 70 years). It says after 70 years, the days are filled with troubles such as sickness, organ change, blood condition, heart condition (Psalms 90:10). Such is the life of a person on earth. This picture is the life of an unbeliever. But as a child of God, you don’t need to worry about this time on earth. It is just a small spot in eternity. If you are an unbeliever, I encourage you to tap into eternity.
The Bible says do not worry about things that have no eternal value. I encourage you to lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven were it’s value is infinite (Matthew 6:19-20).
