TOPIC: Time and Priorities
"As was his custom, Paul went into the synagogue,
and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them
from the Scriptures" - Acts 17:2.
Paul worked full-time to meet the needs of his team, but then he spent his off day fulfilling his purpose of taking the gospel to the Gentiles. He started that purpose process in each city by starting out visiting the synagogues where he would find interested Jews and Gentiles. Paul followed his priorities carefully and did not use his free time to do nothing, but used it to fulfill his purpose. Have you identified your priorities? Are you following them by devoting your time to them in order of importance? Do you have faith that if you follow your priorities and do what you want, God will multiply your efforts?
Lord, it seems that every day time slips away before I can get to the most important things. Some of those things have languished for years in my heart, but no more. Today I will identify my priorities and then, with Your help, discover how I can faithfully follow those priorities in my daily use of time.
