August 10: Time

Scripture Lesson: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

On this date in 1944 at Crosley Field, Braves pitcher Charles “Red” Barrett threw only 58 pitches in beating the Reds 2-0. The nine-inning game took only 75 minutes to complete.

The familiar verses of today’s text, found in Ecclesiastes, are often quoted with relationship to time. The author, known as a “wise man” or sage in Israel, said there is a time for everything. Our time is something we take for granted, and oftentimes we waste. Part of what God desires from each of us is a portion of our time, gladly spent by serving others and expanding His Kingdom. We are good at making excuses as to why we don’t have the time to serve God and others. “I am so busy.” I just don’t have the time.” “My schedule is full, I don’t have a free minute.” Doesn’t it always seem we have time for the things we want to do, like play the game or watch sports on TV? God deserves a portion of our time spent serving Him and serving others.

  1. How much time do we devote to God in a day, week, or month?

  2. Do you agree or disagree? It is not about having the time to serve God; it is about having the desire to serve Him. Why?

  3. When is the last time we served God and our fellow man?

May Jesus not only be the Master of our lives, but also the Master of our calendars.

Amen, this is so true. Remembering to give credit to him in good times is hard. In hard times I think of that scrrtpuie in Proverbs 307 Two things I ask of you; deny them not to me before I die:8 Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me,9 lest I be full and deny you and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor and stealI try my best to remember this scrrtpuie during both times carrying my gratitude into the good times. and profane the name of my God.

I like the first fruits approach to time with God, we give Him the first of our time, talents, and treasure and everything after that is ours to use.

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web
the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they
just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take
a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hello! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog like yours
require a massive amount work? I am brand new to blogging
but I do write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it!

It appears as though some of the text within your posts
are running off the screen. Can someone else please
comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had
this happen before. Thank you
