Horology (James 4:13-17)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “horology.”  I remember early on in my college experience not having a lot of time to do all of the stuff that I wanted.  I was working for the church full time, going to school full-time and trying to fit in the rest of life as well.  Each of us has the same amount of time, whether we are the average Joe, Bill Gates, Billy Graham, or somewhere in between all of that.

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” ~Jam. 4:13-15

My question is: how are you going to prioritize your time?  None of us are forced to do anything.  That is the great thing about this country.  Although we may often feel that someone or something has control over us, and that we must spend our time one way or another, the fact is that we are all given the opportunity to do exactly what we want.  My prayer is that no matter what you choose to do and spend your time on, that you add God to the equation and allow him to give you some guidance and influence.  Although none of us is equipped with the abilities and power to create or change the horology of things, we can use the time allotted in our lives to be productive and efficient.  Choose today to invest your time in the things that matter to God.

Praying for you,
