John D. Rockefeller began his first company with $1,000 of savings and $1,000 loan from his father. In a few years his Standard Oil Company controlled ¾ of the US oil industry and he became one of the wealthiest men in history. Most people would agree that Mr. Rockefeller was a man who made good investments and saw great returns.
Time is given to you by God for an investment. He has great plans to reward your investments. He wants to make you a spiritual billionaire in Heaven by lavishing you with great returns on the time you give Him. The more you follow His directions for investing time, the greater the eternal returns will be.
You would be a foolish person to neglect the many opportunities God provides to gain spiritual wealth each day.
So seize every precious opportunity today to show God’s love and to tell someone of the Savior. You cannot afford to neglect opportunities for spiritual investment of your time. Rather, seek out those investment opportunities and redeem the time.
