Treasures of Time

Psalm 90:12 “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

The recent spate of tragic events in our region awakened many to the stark reminder that our time on this earth is limited. In our pursuit of contentment, many of us are lulled into a false sense of believing that we must do more, have more, and achieve more in order to be content. In actual fact, contentment is a state of internal satisfaction, that no amount of money, food or material gain can buy.

We may not have any power to control time but we can be in control over the time that we have been given by treasuring every new day as a precious gift from the Lord.

It is important to remember that life isn’t just about accomplishments or amassing material wealth. Instead, it’s about the people who have been placed in our families and our communities that matter most.

As we head into this Father’s day weekend, these tips might help us make the most use of our time with the ones we love:

#1 Be Present

To be present means to put away any distractions – devices like mobile phones, tablets and computers – so that we can engage in real conversations. Ask meaningful questions and be intent in listening to the answers.

#2 Make Time to Plan

Spending at least 30 minutes before starting your day (or before going to bed the night before) to plan your schedule can help you to use your time wisely. Without a rough plan, you could find yourself running in circles and wasting precious time.

#3 Advocate Family Time

Make a commitment to set aside a fixed day and time to spend as a family. Again, “be present” during this time together and remember that the objective of Family Time is to enjoy each other’s company.

#4 Rest Effectively

Giving ourselves enough rest is essential to making the most use of our time and being able to enjoy our time with loved ones. Rest is akin to nourishing our bodies with food, air and water.

Being grateful for our treasures of time will help us embrace the gift of each new day and count all our blessings. In the words of a good friend, “I am grateful for my wife, that I have a home, a job that I enjoy, a family and a community…for my freedom to worship, my freedom to speak reasonably freely, for the food I eat. I am grateful to live in a land where no one begrudges me the right to live.”
