I’m convinced time seems to whiz by because we all have such busy calendars. Not only are we planning for 2019 but we’re also planning for November 2018 and December 2018 as well. We don’t have time for October to slowly move by because we are planning for two months later.
What truly amazes is me is how many young adults, college students, and even high school students who complain about the rapid passage of time.
How can we get time to slow down?
First, we can fully and completely live in this day, doing all we do for the glory of God, and making the most of every opportunity. Paul told the church at Colossae to do “whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians 3:17). He also encouraged the church to “Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15-16).
The more we use our days for productive pursuits the more we will think of our days as having significance and value. Whatever you do, do it for God and His glory.
