“Can people tell you are a Christian by how you spend your time?”
Rev. Jeremiah Cheung poses this thought-provoking question and shares three key principles to help us manage our time.
1. The Bible teaches us that we must use our time wisely and that we must likewise make good use of opportunities that come. Please share how you have been using your time wisely and making good use of opportunities.
2. Do you feel that you don’t have enough time to do everything you want to do? Please pause and reflect: What activities do you spend time on? In light of your answer, what changes, if any, would you want to make? Please share.
3. Do you consider yourself busy? What things or causes do you invest time on? Are the things that keep you busy related to eternity? What is the value of the things or causes that keep you busy?
4. Which of these four do you think is the best method — addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division? Why? How do you intend to plan/count your days?
