Redeeming the time

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5: 15, 16)

Great leaders of the world are people of self-discipline. They are often known to be good in time management. You cannot be a good time manager without self-discipline. One important issue that youngsters need to address in their lives is learning how to redeem their time. Time is so precious but it is very fast in slipping away. Your time must be gainfully engaged to take prompt actions on your success goals. Every youth on earth is given the same allotment of hours and minutes in a day. The level of self-discipline of every youth dictates how effectively those hours and minutes are profitably utilized. Disciplined students are wise enough to be diligent in maximizing the use of their time for profitable ventures.

What you achieve at a given time becomes significant at the end of the day when your gains are finally summed up together. The time wasted on joking, jesting, talking, and yelling instead of reading your books can never be redeemed for progress. You’ve got to be prudent enough to avoid careless or needless visitations, peer influence, unprofitable engagements that tend to drain your time. Computer or cell phone games, playing of cards, ludo or snooker will drain your time which could be spent for success pursuit. It is undisciplined students who spend all their time to play football and chess games at the expense of their studies. Self-discipline becomes imperative if you want to be a good time manager.

Challenge: Time flies and waits for nobody

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to be disciplined so as to be a good time manager.
