Time

We are all gifted differently.  We all have different personalities.  We all have different skills.  We are all the same in one area.  Time.  Every one of us, regardless of gifting, IQ, income, parents, country of origin – all of us have 168 hours each week.
What do you say to someone who says they do not have time to study the Bible?
In large part what defines us is how we choose to utilize those 168 hours.  Do we spend them or invest them?

More times than I can count people have told me that they do not have the time to engage in deep Bible study.  I do not believe that.  I do believe that they have chosen to engage in something else.  That they have placed other things at a higher priority than deeply engaging in the Word of God.

“The average American over the age of 2 spends more than 34 hours a week watching live television, says a new Nielsen report — plus another three to six hours watching taped programs.”  Most experts agree that if someone spends an hour a day reading or studying in a field they will soon become an expert.  That would still leave the average person 27 hours of TV.

Matthew 25:14 – 30 suggests that we will be held accountable by God for how we invest the 168 hours he has given us.
