Stewardship is a Biblical principle about time, talent, money, and resources. The concept has been echoed throughout the Bible beginning with the first book. Genesis 2:15 says, “The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” God trusted Adam to take care of his creation.

Likewise, as stewards, God has entrusted us with his time. 1 Corinthians 4: 2 says in part, “It is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” Can we be trusted with God’s time? He has given each of us 24 hours or 1440 minutes each day. We have free will; and how we use it is up to us.

When I think of time, I usually think of the word “hurry” or synonyms: quick, fast, haste, hustle, fly, dart, shoot, streak, rush, dash, flash; you get the picture.  Many times, it seems like time flies by with haste. Now and then I think time tiptoes. It does neither. It is a constant 24 hours, 1440 minutes each day.

So, what does this mean to us as good and faithful stewards? It is time for us to get woke and get on our j-o-b-s! Romans 13:11 says it this way, “And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.”

God’s time is everlasting; one of God’s days is like a thousand of our years. We are promised three scores and ten, just a few minutes in one of God’s days. Psalm 39:4-5 says, “Show me, LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure.”

James 4:14 asks, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” The King James says life is a vapor.

Knowing that life is a “mere handbreadth” or a mist or a vapor, what are we doing to redeem the time? Are we giving our best to God? Are we using our time to glorify the King? Bottom line, can we be trusted with God’s time? I pray so.
