A millisecond has been defined as the period of time between when a stop light turns green and when the guy behind you begins to honk the horn.
Small periods of time, such as when you’re waiting at a stoplight, can be important because lots of little things combined together eventually make up a big thing. That’s why it’s wise to have a strategy for redeeming those small fragments of time most people loose during the day. One way to accomplish that is to create a list of things you can do in one minute or less and keep that list in your wallet, purse, or organizer.
Here are some ideas for starters:
Give someone a gospel tract
Share a funny joke
Write a post card or an email
Plan the remainder of your day
Trim your fingernails
After Jesus fed the multitude he ordered his disciples to gather up the fragments. Let’s follow His example by gathering time fragments so we’ll redeem the time.
