The founder of a well known Christian university is remembered for a simple two word quote he often gave to his students. The little two word sermon was “Do right”
A large part of redeeming the time is simply doing the next right thing with each moment of your time. It means striving to apply each moment of time to its highest possible use. God has a perfect plan for you today. You can picture this plan as several small assignments which will make up your complete mission for the day. The key to having a successful day, is just to have an accumulation of successful smaller missions.
So ask yourself, what is the next right thing I need to do? Going from one right thing to the next throughout the day will give the results you desire at the end of the day. And ending your day well is a good reward for redeeming the time.
