March 23, 2010, 27 year old Albert Baily and his 16 year old accomplice were arrested in the parking lot of the People’s United Bank in Fairfield CT. The two were charged with bank robbery when they showed up 10 minutes after calling the bank to tell them to get the money ready because they were coming to rob them. Police Sgt. James Perez told reporters the pair were “not too bright.”
It would be nice if all robbers were that easy to identify. Because identifying thieves is the best way to keep a theft from occuring.
Satan is also a thief. And one of his main targets is your time. That’s why we should take a moment each day to identify where our time is most likely to be stolen. Could it be friviolous internet time that produces nothing, a gossiping co-worker or neighbor, or a project destined for failure?
By identify your time thieves you can arrest the devil before he hinders you from redeeming the time.
