We don't have an infinite number of days, so it's important that live greatly everyday--as great as we can and not wait for some divine opportunity to make an impact on the world. The truth is, we can make an impact on the world today. In the place of prayer, in the place of initiative, a kind word, standing on a strong conviction.
Most of us have great desires to make change, in our lives and in the world, but we don't create systems and structures to express what's on our heart. When that happens, we forget to perform those desires.
Let me give a quick example. I have a desire to celebrate my friend's birthdays, but if I don't create a system (like writing it on a calendar or asking my a friend to remind me), I'll probably forget and not celebrate my friend (even though it is my desire to do so).
If I want to make the most of my time, I have to be intentional with it. I have to sometimes decide this week what I'll do with my time two weeks from now. I've found that, if I'm not intentional with my time, it is too easily lost.
Figure out how you can live greatly today, tomorrow and the rest of your life through proper time management.
So teach us to number our days, That we may get us a heart of wisdom.
