“Time is money.” Benjamin Franklin quoted this advice towards a young tradesman. We constantly quote this in our lives but do we really understand the meaning? Time is a valuable resource that we definitely cannot get back. Therefore, we ought not to abuse it but use it wisely. We tend to focus on the money aspect and become sidetracked. How are we going to gain wealth when we do not plan our time carefully? In order for us to achieve, we need to prioritize, stay focus on what we need to accomplish within the day. We recognize that time is getting shorter by the days or I should say by the hours and minutes. The night is coming quickly when no one can work (John 9:4). This is the obvious truth. However, in order for us to execute what we intend to do daily, we MUST put it to God in prayer. Prayer is essential for our daily development. You would be surprised to see how you will be able to face challenges in your day. I recognize that having God at the center of my life allows me to achieve any task during the day and within every aspect of my life. With this, it helps me to plan my time. So today, I encourage you not to take time lightly. Plan, execute but most of all put it towards God in pray before you start your day. Use the time we have!
Proverbs 16:9 “In their hearts, human plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”
