Invest Your Life
“I urge each of you to invest your lives, not just spend them. Each of us is given the exact same amount of seconds, minutes, and hours per day as anyone else. The difference is how we redeem [them]…You cannot count your days, but you can make your days count.” ~Billy Graham
Our company teaches all about investing money but what are you investing your life in? Have you ever decided to take a quick five-minute scroll in social media only to discover you have lost an hour or more of your time? There are so many distractions in our world today, while technology can be a blessing it can also be a curse! As easily as that wasted hour on social media our lives can also be wasted as well and a drain on the greatest commodity each of us possess, our time!
We know from the Bible that heavens streets are paved with gold (Revelation 21:21), and the wall of the city is adorned with jewels. If the most valuable treasures on earth are used to pave the streets what then is of the greatest value in heaven? I would say that the greatest transaction ever made, the life of Jesus, was for all people. The Bible is clear that people are of the highest value to God, so as servants of God we also should have a heart for the lost. Share the goodness of God with those you meet so that they might see Jesus in you and desire a relationship with Him as well.
How is God calling you to invest your time?
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28: 18-20
Each of us is called to make disciples, walking alongside those who are new to the faith. Pray that the Lord will give you opportunity to share His love with all who cross your path today!
EACH OF YOU SHOULD USE WHATEVER GIFT YOU HAVE RECEIVED TO SERVE OTHERS, AS FAITHFUL STEWARDS OF GOD’S GRACE IN ITS VARIOUS FORMS.
