Sagging Rafters

"If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks"Ecclesiastes 10:8 (NIV)

There are some biblical principles, which warn us about laziness and idleness. In many places today we see the opposite with rush, rush, rush in the lives around us and even spreading often into our own lives. No matter what you are doing today one simple rule stands: The way you think today is going to determine who you are tomorrow, and the same applies to our time:

"What we do with your time today will determine where we are tomorrow."

The writer to the Hebrews exhorts us to be diligent with all we are given.

"We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised" Heb 6:11-12 (NIV)

A lot of what we receive today can be broken down into chunks of time - in between the beginning and end of each day.

More than ever before with respect to the use of our time in ministry, whether full time ministry or with the more time constrained lay ministries, we absolutely must focus some more of our energy not simply on how to fulfil God’s call on our lives but to ask ourselves what is the best use of my time in God’s eyes.

Reminding yourself daily "How can I respect and honour your gift of time Lord?"

God has a plan and purpose for our lives. We have been amply enlightened in recent years with authors and eminent leaders of our generation reminding us of the call to having "purpose" in our lives. In order to reach these God appointed purposes on our lives we need to breakdown our Goals, into steps we can put our hands around.

*** Whoa.... when I learn how to talk Jesus ah?
