It’s day three of our Five Social Media Secret Weapons. So what’s the third thing that that will significantly amp your time online as a Christ follower?
Secret weapon #3: A kitchen timer. Yup—it’s a simple household tool that will change your digital life if you harness its power. Determine your plan, set your priorities, and set your timer accordingly (ie: set your timer to spend 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the after noon on social networks).
3 spiritual benefits to taming your time:
God’s agenda wins. Managing time is like herding cats sometimes. It’s tough! Sooner or later you realize that you need God’s help to do it well. Get intentional. Ask God for help in setting priorities. Seek His heart so you can make the most of every opportunity He brings your way.
You learn to surrender. Scripture teaches that we need to hand over everything to God including our time. God wants to be the author of your priorities and schedule. Practice surrendering your minutes and hours to God—go ahead—start now! He will help you focus your attentions.
You learn to say “no.” When you manage your time well some things you used to think were critical simply fall away—and wow—somehow the world keeps on turning.
What’s your biggest challenge in managing your time online?
