I'm supposed to look well rested and chipper Sunday morning? I better get a lot of sleep.
Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Let me put it another way. For where your treasure is, there you will spend your time.
Here are a few rules I use that tell me how to spend my time.
Prioritize. Christ always comes first. Being a husband is next. I'm married to the most beautiful woman in the world, but sorry Anneka, it's not you. Next, I am a father. (Feel better Anneke?). Then I am a leader, a pastor and so on. I know my priorities, so when I have to make a decision between two different things, I know who wins.
I give my first time to Christ. First thing in the morning He gets my time. Starting my day this way helps me be a better Father, Husband, Pastor and so on.
I like the word, "no." Some people don't like it, but I love it. It keeps me from looking like a fool, getting distracted and from failing others. Saying no to some things in your life is necessary.
I learned this from Michael Hyatt. Time isn't a renewable resource, but energy is. Budget your time, but get the rest and exercise you need.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, I get distracted so easily. Help me to give You the first part of my day. AMEN
