Invest Your Time, Don't Spend It - Biblical Manhood Series

What could you do if you used 2 extra hours a day for creating, producing, learning? Of 12 extra hours per week?

624 hours per year.

Over a 5 year period, that is 130 extra days. Not 8 hour days, 24 hour days.

Jesus was a man who had a full schedule and made the most of his time.

Hear me – I am not advocating or suggesting you work 80 hours a week at your job. Not at all, I don’t believe that is a good use of time.

What I am advocating though is that you get rid of all the dilly dally things in your life that keep your distracted and ineffective. Right now, most of my listeners, you are responsible for only you which means you don’t have that much responsibility. But one day you will. One day you will be married; you will have kids; you will have a higher promotion.

One day you will be responsible for more than yourself and if you dilly dally your time away now instead of preparing you will carry those bad habits into your future. Right now you can work 32 hours a week, eat poorly, and play video games till late at night.

Is that what you want to bring into your future?

Is that the kind of man you want to be?

Is that the legacy you want to leave?

Your twenties are your defining decade according to Dr. Meg Jay (she wrote a book about it). How you spend your twenties sets the stage for the rest of your life. It is time to use that time well. Now is the time to practice and prepare for that future responsibility by owning and investing your time wisely, not dilly dallying in things that do not profit.
