I came across a list of funny bumper stickers recently which included:
-If at first you donít succeed, skydiving isnít for you.
-Old age comes at a bad time.
-I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
And my favorite, ďFirst things first- just not necessarily in that order.Ē That last one captures the essence of why many people fail to redeem the time. They know what they should be doing and they have in mind to do it. The problem is they arenít committed to doing it today.
But learning to do first things first is a skill every Christian must learn if we are to become the best possible stewards of the time God has given us. Many people claim they just donít have time to get it all done. And thatís true because no one gets it all done. Thatís why we have to make sure weíre getting the most important things done first.
Remember, when we do first things first we redeem the time.
