  • The purpose of time

The ignorance of time produces the consequence of an abused life. You are your time, people use their given time in proportion to their assignments in life.

  • You are your time

The apportionment of your time is in relation to the exact assignment you are expected to complete. When you use your time for something that it is not meant for, you have wasted your time and abused your purpose. We are who we are today because of how we used our time. Every one of us is racing against the punch clock, therefore we need to use our time with meaning.

I used to ask myself why I am sometimes late on certain occasions, and my excuse would be that I was delayed. The problem was not the usage of my time, but the abuse or misuse of this great and precious commodity. I suddenly realised that it had nothing to do with the clock on the wall, but rather an ignorance of the good and proper management of my priorities in life. The simple secret was to understand what is urgent and important in life. Perhaps I had no regard for those occasions and some were not regarded as high priority in my life.

  • The abuse of time

As long as your time is not in good order, your life will remain out of order. No one has the power over your will to abuse your time except when you hand it over to be abused. Time must be used purposefully, because it is given for a purpose, and the benefits thereof must yield good results.

  • Understanding time

Time is revealed through the passing of years. As you are reading this statement, you may be asking yourself a lot of questions, like: “What did I do with my time all these years of my life, or even this year?” People become different, because they use their time differently. The outcome of your life will be determined by the effective use of your time on earth.

  • Redeeming your time

Whatever time you have lost you can still redeem by using the last amount of your time that you still have. Purpose is the only redemption of time. As long as you still exist, you can complete your race on earth. You may not have started well in time, but you could still exit with a good report. Sometimes not all of us started well, but remember that in a race, it is not how you started, but how you finish the course of your race in life. Make sure that you eliminate all your time wasters and start taking charge of your destiny. You can resolve to redeem your time by living a life full of purpose and by using your time with meaning. Go for it once more and determine the outcome of your time well spent in life.
