Watch the Time - Monday, March 5th, 2007  

"Therefore, be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,
making the most of your time, because the days are evil."

~ Ephesians 5:15-16 

Do you ever think that there is not enough time in the day to get everything done?  But then when you actually think about it, you wonder what you did?  This thought came to my mind yesterday evening when my wife asked if I had a good productive hour from 9:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.?  She knew I had couple of things I wanted to get done before tomorrow.   

I had to think about it.  I knew that I good intentions to read a book for school, but yet I didn't.  I couldn't tell you what I did.  I just wandered around the apartment.  I was thinking.  I was pondering. But I didn't do what I wanted to do.  I wasn't wise in how I managed my time.  So I am here to tell you, that today I am going to be intentional about "making the most of (my) time."  I need to because I have three meetings today.  And it is easy to let the "in-between time" get away from me, but I can't let this happen. I must be intentional about every little thing.  As a friend mentioned in Sunday School mentioned yesterday, we are to view every situation and person as an "opportunity, not an obstacle."  Good advice when we are living for the Lord. Therefore, let's not let the time slip away from us today.  So my prayer for the body of Christ in Dallas is that we take advantage of the time we have been given.  How do we fulfill this prayer?  Well, regardless of "our" time schedule, we must always focus on our God-given purpose for the day.  The Apostle Paul confirmed of having this mindset when he wrote in Ephesians 5:17-18, "So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit."
