We make time for the things in our lives that are important to us. By making time for one thing…you are in turn saying no to a myriad of other things.

When we don’t make time for something it means that it isn’t one of our highest priorities. We’ve made a decision to do something else.

Last week I heard someone talking about how time is the one thing that all humans have in common. Regardless of where you live, what you do, how many people you know…we all have 24 hours in a day.

Several years ago I listened to a sermon by Pastor Steven Furtick. The sermon series was called Treatment and the topics were anxiety, depression, grief, and insecurity.

He gave the example of a basketball shot clock… Even when you miss the shot…there’s still a chance that you can get a new 24 and then take another shot.

What’s amazing is that life is the same way. Each day we get a new 24. A new opportunity to live more wisely. To serve more fully. To be more intentional.

To prioritize and make time for the things that matter most to us.

How are you going to use your next 24?
