Our Daily Bread Devotional 21 June 2018

Topic: Telling Time

Read: Psalm 90:9–17, Bible in a Year: Esther 3–5; Acts 5:22–42

key Verse: Make] the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16

Message: “Westerners have watches. Africans have time.” So said Os Guinness, quoting an African proverb in his book Impossible People. That caused me to ponder the times I have responded to a request with, “I don’t have time.” I thought about the tyranny of the urgent and how schedules and deadlines dominate my life.

Moses prayed in Psalm 90, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (v. 12). And Paul wrote, “Be very careful, then, how you live . . . making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15–16).

I suspect that Paul and Moses would agree that our wise use of time isn’t just a matter of clock-watching. The situation may call for us to keep a tight schedule—or it may compel us to give someone an extended gift of our time.

We have but a brief moment to make a difference for Christ in our world, and we need to maximize that opportunity. That may mean ignoring our watches and planners for a while as we show Christ’s patient love to those He brings into our lives.

As we live in the strength and grace of the timeless Christ, we impact our time for eternity.

Prayer: Father, You have given us all the time we need to accomplish what You have given us to do. May we use our time in ways that honor You.

Time management is not about clock-watching, it’s about making the most of the time we have.
