Time is a commodity that we all have equal amounts of - 24 hours per day. Ephesians 5:16 tells us to redeem the time because the days are evil. How we invest our time and the motivation with which we invest says a great deal about the kingdom that we are pursuing. Matthew 6:33 says seek first the kingdom of God. Does the way we invest or leverage our time reflect a committment to this truth? Is the motivation behind our investment of time a reflection of this primary pursuit--the kingdom of God?

How does the reality of being a citizen in God's kingdom get fleshed out in daily life - in our families, in our churches, at our jobs, with our friends? How is the reality of King Jesus reflected in the choices that I make everyday with respect to time?

I was at a leadership workshop the other day where we were talking about time management. One of the many things I got out of it was the idea of "investment"--I've heard it before but sometimes it takes a different context to make certain things stick.

Investing time as an expression of worship and obedience to King Jesus.
