Do you spend your time wisely? (128-5)
Leaders who manage their time can do more with less. Read Psalm 90:12.
Moses had seen a generation squander 40 years in the wilderness after leaving Egypt and before entering the Promise Land. He knew that if leaders could only gain a keen sense of the passage of time, and if they would work for something significant, they could die with a great sense of satisfaction. Unless leaders understand the brevity and place proper value on the time they have, they will never be known as effective in their leadership.
Leaders can employ skills and principles of time management and employ the world’s best scheduling system but all will be of little benefit until a leader understands the value of time. They may appear to do a better job of scheduling time but that doesn’t mean they are doing a better job of spending time. Knowing the difference requires wisdom.
According to Moses, the years of life pass quickly (90:10). As I have gotten older I look back and wonder where the time went. Each of us is allotted a finite number of days. Are you spending those days with no goal, no purpose in sight or are you numbering your days?
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.”
