Over the last 30 years of my adult life I have been involved in more meetings than I care to remember. Some of those meetings were productive. Others were a waste of time. I am sure you can relate.
However, looking back over the past 30 years brings a flood of memories of time well spent. When I think of those moments I am thankful I was given the opportunity.
The apostle Paul looked back on his life with spiritual thoughtfulness. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith…”
The terminology is past tense. He knew his time was well spent.
When we examine our lives as leaders, can we look back on our lives and influence in the Lord’s kingdom as time well spent?
There will always be areas we wish we could change. We must learn from those areas and make sure we do not repeat them.
The time we have been given is ours to use. I pray we will live so as to look back and think it was time well spent.
