The Miracle of 4 Hours

The Miracle of 4 Hours

Featured in the October, 2013 Issue of the Ashburn Baptist News

The management of time is the management of your life. If you are wasting time, you are wasting your life.

What is your daily schedule? Let’s say that you sleep a full 8 hours and work with commuting takes another 10 hours a day. Then, let’s allow 2 hours for eating and other personal concerns. Add that and get 20 hours which leaves you 4 hours each day of disposable time. These are the hours that are most valuable. This is the time which can determine the effectiveness and value of your life.

If you start adding up 4 hours each work day, you come up with 1,000 hours per year. Assuming you work from age 22-65, this leaves you with 43,000 hours of disposable time!

What can be done with these 4 hours per day? You can learn to play a musical instrument. You could learn a foreign language. You could read through the Bible. You could become an expert in almost any field that you would choose.

Yet, how often we say, “I’m busy or my life is already stuffed full”? And yet, there are these 4 hours each work day of the week. The Scripture says that we should be “making the best use of the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16, and “Our days on earth are like a shadow” (I Chronicles 29:15).

With the wise use of these 4 daily hours, make your life effective, vibrant and exciting.
