Giving Our Time-Part Five


If you have just become a subscriber to Spiritual Nuggets, we suggest you go to the archives to read the previous nuggets on this subject.


We have been late in getting out this nugget. We have been very busy working on starting The House of Myrrh ( and have not had time to complete this nugget.  We are sorry for the delay.


Before we close out this nugget we should speak on the subject of Prioritizing our Time. There are times when we just do not have enough time to do all that needs to be done. (At least all that it seems we need to do). There are times we just have to say no. Friends, family, church, or employers may make us feel guilty if we say ‘I don’t have the time’. However, the prioritizing of our time should not be controlled by others. Some things just are not going to get done. That is ok. 


As Christians we must acknowledge that all our time (life) belongs to God. We are asked by Him to be good stewards of our time. Some of us are so busy that we do not have time for the things of God. Others are so busy doing the things of God, they have no time for themselves or family. The Lord wants us to live a balanced life.  Also, let’s not forget the fourth commandment- "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work.”
Exodus 20:8, 9


We want to remind all of you that “There is therefore no condemnation in Christ Jesus”. Receive God’s mercy and ask Him to give you the grace to do what He has called you to do and the time to do it.
