Someone said, “I wish I could stand on a busy corner and beg people to give me all their wasted hours.” What a profound thought that is!
Time management experts generally agree that most people will waste at least two hours each day. But, the saddest part is that most people either don’t seem to realize how much time they waste or they just don’t seem to care.
As Christians, God calls us to a higher standard when it comes to using our time. We are accountable to Him. He commands us to redeem the time, that is, to apply each moment to its greatest possible use for His honor and glory. Even if they wanted to, none of those people on the street corner could give you any of their wasted time. Only God can give us time. And only we can make sure we redeem the time.
