Week 2 – Jeff Maness – September 16, 2018
Time is not meant to be managed for God it’s meant to be leveraged for good. We all have been given the same amount of time, so it’s not how much time we’ve been given but what we do with the time we already have. How can we leverage our time for good?
2 Corinthians 6:11-13 (The Message) Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!
Time is not meant to be managed for God, it’s meant to be leveraged for good.
Colossians 4:5 5 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.
Ephesians 5:15-16 15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
