Practice Good Stewardship

We are stewards of our time. God has given each one of us a little “chunk of eternity” called time. These golden moments of opportunity are doled out to us for our benefit and for God’s glory. If we use them wisely, they are woven by God’s omnipotent hand into the fabric of eternity. Henry Thoreau cautioned, “You cannot kill time without injuring eternity.” “He who has no vision of eternity,” said Carlyle, “has no hold on time.” “Only one life, ’twill soon be past; only what’s done for Christ will last” is the sentiment of every man who desires to be a good steward of his time. We are entrusted with a small portion of the capital of time. If we invest it wisely, it will pay dividends throughout eternity.

Prayer for the day

Take away my procrastinating nature—how easy it is for me to waste time. I want to be able to leave a legacy of time spent for You, Lord, because that is eternal.

    You don’t know how many times I look back at my childhood years in Sunday School and church and wished I had been taught more about becoming a missionary as well as other things I feel now I should have been taught as not in my 50’s I wish I had lived my whole life for the Lord wherever it would have taken me.

    Wow yes Lord, forgive me for wasting time and not being a good steward. Help me to be a good steward of time and all resources you put into my hands. In Jesus’ mighty and holy name:) I love you Father!

    May Jesus help me and all to become good stewards of our time. Please help me to put to one side the distractions in life, the worldly things that lead me from Jesus. Help me to toil harder for the proclamation of the Gospel, now and forever more Amen.
