It has been said that children spell the word love “T-I-M-E.”
I think there’s a lot of truth to the idea that time and love are connected. Love is not about empty words or temporary emotions. It’s about time.
Since there is only so much time in a day, this means we should pay attention to how we use it. Time can be spent on all kinds of things. I love spending time with my kids…even though two of them are teenagers! I can also spend hours watching TV, especially now that I have Netflix. I’m not a huge user of social media, but there seems to be a never-ending range of new things to do with phones and computers. I don’t think spending time in any of these ways is necessarily bad, but any of them can take over all of our attention until there is no time left for God.
This May we are going to talk about all the things that distract us from God, and how we might use those hours to glorify God if we truly believe It’s About Time.
