Most people think there are four Gospels. But did you know there are actually five? They are Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and you. The problem is, most people won’t read the first four. But the good part is they are constantly reading the fifth one.
When someone reads the Gospel of your life, one of the main chapters they examine is how you spend your time. For us to provide them with quality reading material, we must be continuously creating a life that is different from what they are used to seeing in an unbelieving world.
How about your schedule today? Does it contain anything that would set you apart from a crowd of nonbelievers? It’s been said the two greatest indicators of a person’s priorities are his checkbook and his date book. How you spend your time and how you spend your money often reveal what you really consider most important.
Keeping that in mind as you plan the remainder of your day might help you redeem the time.
