What are you doing with your Time? - Secrets of Ministry Success #7

Everyone has the same amount of time in a day. You have exactly the same amount of time to spend today as everyone else who is alive.
Time waits for no man. We each have:

7 days a week.
365 days a year.
24 hours in a day.
1,440 minutes in a day.
86,400 seconds in a day.
You only have so much time, so spend it wisely. Recognize the value of your time. Wise King Solomon understood the importance of time, when he said, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV).

Time is more valuable than money. If you lose your money, you can figure out a way to earn more but if you run out of time, everything is over. You can get money back, but you can never get time back.

Time is the most valuable asset you have, but it is only as valuable as you make it. Hamburger flippers trade their time for $10 an hour; lawyers trade their time for $350 an hour. The way time is used separates the rich from the poor. The difference between an impoverished person and a wealthy person is how they use their time. Using time wisely is the secret of the wealthy.

Broke people abuse time.
Needy people misuse time.
Losers are those who do not use their time wisely.
Opportunities follow those who use their time wisely.

Time is our currency here on the earth. We trade time for money (paycheck). We trade time for relationships. We trade time for knowledge. What are you trading your time for? How are you spending your time?
