a word from THE Sponsor ~ October 2

Use your time in the best way you can. ~Colossians 4:5 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

It is that time of year… email Inbox in the double digits, laundry in piles, papers too, leaves needing a rake, winterizing on the to-do list.

My to-do list, your to-do list. If I am not very intentional, then I begin to be in the service of my to-do list.

Colossians 4:5 addresses how to spend time with those who need The Savior. I think there are applications to general time management too.

I like the simplicity of the International Children’s Bible’s version of  Colossians 4:5: Use your time as best you can. It is much more concrete than other versions: redeeming the time (KJV), or  make the most of every opportunity (NIV).

Do the best you can, do not spend time in guilt-drama over not spending time correctly. And, because of grace, the best way is the way that brings praise and glory to Him.
