Charles Sheldon in the book “In His Steps” pioneered the now popular phrase, “What would Jesus do?” Sheldon would probably not have considered himself a time management expert. But he articulated the key principle of Biblical time management.
How we spend a day, is the result many small decisions all day long which combine make up our day. As we approach the point of each new decision, learning to apply the question, “What would Jesus do?” will guide us into how we need to use each new block of time. After a whole day of consistently asking this question and applying this principle, we can look back with satisfaction on a day well spent.
What decisions are you facing in the next three hours? Ask yourself the question “What would Jesus do?” The answer will tell you what you need to do to redeem the time.
