At 7 ft 8 inches Radhouane Cahrbib of Tunisia is the world’s tallest living man. Radhouane is one of 11 tall brothers and sisters. He enjoys playing basketball and not surprisingly his local team is top of the league. Radhouane says he enjoys “the position from which I see the world.”
Whether he realized it or not, Radhouane expressed a key principle of Biblical time management. Viewing life from a higher perspective means using our time in ways that will matter further down the road.
God said, “My ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts”. When you are up higher you can naturally see further down the road. Seeing life from God’s perspective then is to focus not on the immediate, but on what is long lasting or permanent. Cultivating the ability to see and plan further down the road, including preparing for eternity, gives us the frame of reference we need to redeem the time.
