How we spend the time God has given us is important because....
We can spend time, make time, take time, kill time, manage time, waste time, or save time. We can have a good time, a bad time, quality time, or have no time at all. We can be pressed for time, loose track of time, keep up with the times, or arrive somewhere just in the nick of time.
The world uses Greenwich Mean Time to set time. And don’t forget to observe Daylight Savings Time in the springtime. For some reason that no one has time to explain, we stop observing Daylight Savings Time in the wintertime, but that’s ok, because by that time, it’s Christmas time.
We can spend lots of time at jobs that are either part time or full time, and then get home just in time for dinner time while we watch primetime. Some shows are even scripted in real time.
Sometimes people get to the end of a long hard day and proclaim that it’s Miller Time!
We can read about someone’s life and times in the New York Times or the Los Angeles Times. But whatever newspaper we read, it doesn’t really matter because it’s probably owned by Warner and Time.
Everyone remembers their first time.
Football has time outs and half time. But the officials that keep time obviously don't understand time or a game wouldn't last for another hour and a half after they’ve called time.
Some of you might want to travel through time in a time machine, or at least bury a time capsule so that those who follow us later in time can see how we spent our time. That’s because once upon a time we lived in better times but really, there’s no time like the present time.
Prisoners serve hard time, most guys in bars are just looking for a good time, and the rest of us are simply trying to take life one day at a time.
We can even spend time singing about time. For example, there’s “Time is on my Side,” “One Moment in Time,” “Time in a Bottle,” and that all time favorite; “Get Me to the Church on Time.”
Musically inclined chefs like to cook with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
In conclusion, I want to note that time marches on and we all need to spend time setting priorities on our timeline before old man time catches up with us and we are forever out of time.
I’m living on Tulsa time, but in reality it’s all God’s time. That time is precious.
How are you spending the time God has given you? How do you wish you were spending God's time? Do you feel like you live on God's time or your own?
