What are you able to accomplish in the 168 hours that are available to you each week? If you were to keep a daily journal, what would you discover about the way you spent your time? Matthew 6:21 teaches us, “that where are treasure is, there our hearts will be also.”
Have you ever stopped to consider that the way you spend your time reveals what you treasure?
What I have discovered over the years, is there is only one investment that is guaranteed to produce lasting fruit that will outlive you – and that is relationships.
Not only am I called to treasure family relationships,but also kingdom relationships. God is a God of relationship, and I have been commanded to build the kingdom through evangelism and discipleship. As Titus 2 women, God has called you and me to invest in the younger woman. How can you or I possibly obey that instruction if we have no time committed to it?
Take time to record how you spent your time last week. How much of it was spent in relationship with your family? How much of it was spent investing in the kingdom? If at the end of your week, your time reveals you had no time for relationships, you allowed some thieves to come in and steal it away.
Don’t be disheartened, you can make better choices next week by calling a young woman or new believer to invite her for coffee. You can plan a special date night for you and your husband. Or schedule a game night with family and friends. Remember your time is a treasure and the way that you spend it will reveal where your heart is.
