Time is our only real currency. The menu of life is vast, offering innumerable options of how to spend, invest, or donate our time. Each of us possess a limited, mostly unpredictable supply, but stewardship and discretion remain our own. How we use our finite supply of time is one of the few facets of life we actually control, and control it we must, for if we fail to prioritize our time we will fall victim to the priorities of others.
How we spend our money is a reflection of our hearts. In the same vein, how we spend our time is a reflection of our hearts. Time does equal money, does it not?
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21)
What stirs your soul? What frustrates you about the world? What would you like to see different?
Ask yourself these questions. Know yourself and know your priorities, because you can’t afford not to. Ponder these things and consider your role in creating change. Pursue the longings of your heart. Nothing is more discouraging to me than the feeling that I’m wasting time, doing something less than that which I’m called to.
When’s the last time you had a reality check?
