Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 90:12(KJV); So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
As a child of God, the wisdom to manage your time is a critical mark of your seriousness with both life and God.
I know Christians who are serial latecomers. They are very comfortable with turning up at Church at whatever time they please.
How does that happen? They thought it a good idea to watch an extra episode of that Netflix series they have been glued to for the past few hours.
For some, they thought the service day was the perfect day to indulge in some extra minutes of sleep because after all, God will not mind.
While it is understandable that some commitments for example work may keep one from getting to Church on time, some have no such leg to stand on. They simply do not have it in them to honour God by showing up early.
As a fundamental rule, never get into Church when the Word of God is already being preached. Be seated before the ministry of the Word begins.
While you may assume that this is a small and inconsequential matter, understand that God observes these small things about your life. Ultimately, misusing and abusing time tells heaven that you are not ready for greatness.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Misusing and abusing time tells heaven that you are not ready for greatness.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for training my Spirit in the discipline of keeping and never wasting time. I know my Lord You are not a waster of anything, least of all time. I grow in mastery in this area of my life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
