When we are growing up, we often exclaim, “I can’t wait to be older!” When we get older, we exclaim, “Oh, I wish I was younger!” Many times, it seems we’re never happy with where we are in our years of life.
As we approach another new year, let us remember, time waits for no one. As the songwriter said, “Time keeps on slipping into the future.” When we were younger we were wishing away our years, and as we get older, we wish we had them back.
We can all learn to be wise managers of time. Each of us is given 525,600 minutes in a year. It would make a huge difference for us to look at time as currency you can spend on things that are worthwhile or things that are not worthwhile. I don’t think we would give $100 for a banana, but many times, we waste the valuable commodity of time on things that do not matter.
D. L. Moody said, “Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at something that doesn’t really matter.” All of us probably have areas in our lives that produce nothing. It can be like a sucker on a vine that takes a lot of sap but does not produce any fruit.
The Bible says, “So, then, be careful how you walk, not as unwise people, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” In the area of time management, priorities are critical. How we spend money and time is ultimately what we value the most.
New Year’s resolutions prove to be transitory at best. There is a sense of optimism when a new year begins, but if we’re not careful, we slide right back into old habits. The definition of insanity is this, “Doing the same thing, but expecting a different result.” The Bible lets us know of a God who says, “I will make all things new.” Through receiving Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, we become new creations, “Old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new.”
As we approach a new year with faith and confidence, let us remember our God will make a way where there seems to be no way. The Bible says, “You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.”
My prayer is that God will help us all be good stewards of the time He has given us. May you have a happy and blessed new year.
