Are You Spending Enough Time With God?
Much has changed since the electric clock was invented in the 1840s. We now keep time on smartphones, watches, and laptops.
The entire pace of life appears faster, with even our 'leisurely" walking speeding up. This is especially true in cities and can have a rather negative effect on our health, say many scholars.
In the Bible Moses, the writer of one of the oldest books of the Bible's psalms, reflected on time. He reminds us that God controls life's pace. "A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night," he wrote in the Psalms.
It appears to me that the secret to time management isn't to move faster or slower. It's to abide in God and spend more time with Him. Then we get in step with each other, but by giving each day to God. Moses said, "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Then with God, we'll always be on time, nor and forever.
