KEYS FOR LIVING - TIME MANAGEMENT

WISDOM TO MAXIMIZE YOUR MINUTES

No one wants to look back on life and realize important opportunities were missed or precious time was wasted. We all want to enjoy the time God has given us and use that time to make a difference in the world. These Keys for Living provide practical help on how to prioritize what’s important, organize your schedule, and maximize your minutes. Don’t waste another moment—discover God’s plan and purpose for you!

“Making the most of time” can be a greatly misunderstood motto! Good time management is not marching to the beat of some rigorous, strict regimen on the road to productivity. It is finding the freedom to be all God created you to be by being balanced in your life and becoming a wise steward of time. This wisdom is poetically expressed in the balanced cadence of Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, encouraging you to live in harmony with God’s movement … to go with God’s flow.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1

What Is Time?

Both the Hebrews and the Greeks used different words with distinctly different meanings for our English word time. They understood the difference between time that is chronologically measured and time that cannot be measured. Gaining a sense of God’s eternal time means far more than living life by the tick of a clock.

  • Passage of Time

The Old Testament Hebrew word yom means “a space of time that is chronicled by measuring a day from sunrise to sunset … or from one sunset to the next.”  It is the measurable period on a clock or calendar.

“In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord.”

Genesis 4:3

  • God’s Eternal Time

The Old Testament Hebrew word eth, often translated as “time,” is a word that conveys the idea of an opportunity or a season; of perpetuity or eternity. The emphasis is more on what, than on when.

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

Ecclesiastes 3:11

  • Chronological Time

In the New Testament the Greek word chronos, which means “a space of time,” refers to the marking of hours, days, months and years on a calendar.  For example, First and Second Chronicles record the history of the Hebrews from one king to another, year after year.

“Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.”

Matthew 2:7

  • God’s Presence in Time

The New Testament Greek word kairos is time marked for a purpose and filled with meaning. While chronos emphasizes length and quantity of time, kairos emphasizes characteristics and quality.  Time that is made eternal by the presence of God is kairos.

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords.”

1 Timothy 6:12–15
