Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
The many blessings of God are “good and perfect gifts” and we are to be good stewards, or care takers, of all things that God gives us, including the gift of our time. Once we show that we can be trusted with the things that we have been given stewardship over, then the Lord can entrust us with even more!
Devotion: Being A Good Steward of Time
Sincerely and consistently bringing our time to God keeps our hearts in proper alignment with God. Taking good care of our hearts is critical to our faith walk because it keeps us focused, intentional, and sensitive to the Lord’s voice. Aside from cautiously guarding what we let inside, God also needs us to expand our hearts so that we can have limitless capacity to receive what only He can give.
With a larger capacity, we are then able to better receive an abundance of good things He has in store for us: wisdom, blessings, and power! We are called to give selflessly to others, and it’s is a lot easier to give to others when we have prioritized time with God! We are also called to faithfully spend time with him, getting to know him better each time we do.
We honor the Lord by giving Him our time. Our loving Father honors a heart that longs to be with Him!
