Here is a good post on marriage, reminding us that we only have so much time and so had better be purposeful with it!
Rich or poor, we are all allotted equal doses of time. For each of us, we have 168 hours a week to spend. That works out to 10,080 minutes. There is no favoritism…no ways to earn more or deals to make that give us less. We all stand on equal footing. It seems like a lot, no? No!
Remove about a third of them for sleep and you have about 112 hours left. Take away about another 22 hours for eating and you’ve got just under 13 hours each day left. Now, factor in driving to work, work, and driving home from work. Add to that church events and Community Group. Add to that baseball practice and dance lessons…you see where I’m going. Time is precious and there are many, many things in our lives begging for more. Yet, just like dollars, we have a limited supply. And unlike dollars, we can’t even run into debt on our time. There is a hard stop at 168 hours a week. Read the rest here.
