“Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15,16)
How we spend our time can determine whether our lives are successful or unsuccessful. To rightly use time, we must put things into proper perspective and prioritize our purposes.
Take time for reading and meditating on God’s word. Paul advised Timothy of the same. Start your day slowly.
Take time to pray. Talk to God daily. Give him praise daily and word your thoughts to him.
Take time to plan, to organize and to set goals and objectives for self, for family, and above all for God. What do you plan to do for God now and down the road? Prepare for the day’s events. Decide how many repairs you will complete today. How many new customers? What is your strategy?
Take time for family. There is little in life more valuable than family. Quality time spent with family is one of the best investments one can make.
Take time for friends. We should nurture and cultivate our friendships. Build a relationship with each of your customers.
Take time to serve God and your fellow man. It is a great blessing and marvelous privilege to serve God and to do his will. Serve your customers with joy and gladness.
Take time to enjoy life. We all need to relax, refresh ourselves, and get away from the daily grind of life.
