Make Using Your Time A Spiritual Discipline

Schedule your time as a Spiritual Discipline.

What does your calendar say about you?

What does your calendar say about you? Is it filled with appointments for work or church? Who are you seeing? If I looked at it, would one or both of us be embarrassed?

How are you feeling about your time right now? Stressed? Not enough time for things you would like to do? People you would like to see? Books to read — or write? Kids to play with?

Time is a Spiritual discipline.

The Bible does not spell it out. But Daniel took time out of his busy days to pray three times daily. Jesus went off alone often to play and meditate. It must have been on their schedule.

Did you know that you could put time on your schedule just for you? There. You have my permission. Right on your calendar you can block out 15 minutes for prayer or meditation. 30 minutes for Spiritual reading. An hour with your spouse or kids. Date night. Block out time for growth and reflection. Another meeting? Sorry, I’m busy at that time.

Bill Hybels talks about the power of the schedule. When you set out to enter things, he advises, don’t ask what you want to get done. Ask who you want to become.

View your use of time as a Spiritual Discipline. Use it to become the person God wants you to be.
