Having the value for time is one aspect of life that would make you be at par with achieving your given life purpose. These words of motivation on how to redeem the value of time in your favour is something you really need to read that would motivate you towards greatness.
“To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up [that which is] planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made every [thing] beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end”. Ecclesiastes [3:1-11]
In redeeming the value of time in your favour, you need to understand what the meaning of value and time are. When you as an individual placed a worth on something, that thing becomes valuable. It is the value you placed on a thing that makes it important. When you have a value for something, it drives in you the zeal of accomplishment. You might not accomplish anything without having value for time. In Ephesians [5:15-16], it says; “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil”.
If we are to redeem the time, we shouldn’t walk as fools, but as those that are wise. Giving direction to your life, will aid you to accomplish more. It makes you become focus towards achieving your aim in life. And this you will do by having value for time. Remember that time waits for nobody. It is him who has no value for time that will live as if such has nothing to accomplish. The world we are is a market place. And we need to live everyday as if it is our last.
When you take a look at time, it is what will help tell the future. That is if you manage your time well. Time tells of the progression of events. The events it tells can be in the past, within the present and in the future. This event, takes seconds, minutes, hours, days, months etc to accomplish. When you mismanaged your time within the event it occurs, you might have no other moment to redeem it. To make a success out of your life, you need to make your time count.
Taking a look at your immediate environment and the society we live in, the issues that arise through chaos and other vices are as a result of mismanaged time. When those in authorities failed to make use of their time for productive ventures, their idle mind becomes vulnerable to do evil. There is nothing that contributes to backwardness in any society as that of a wasted time. Time is what builds you up for success and what you do with the valuable time in your hand at every minute it ticks; helps determine where you are heading to as an individual, a society or a nation.

The beauty of time is that we all have an equal among of it. Everybody is entitled to 24 hours a day, 168 hours a week and 8736 hours a year. Now looking at the equality of time given to everybody; you may seem to ask why is it that some accomplished more while some also accomplished nothing. The simplest answer to it is that some made use of their time, while some do nothing about their time. If you seek to measure time, remember that time has no price tag. You can never place a price on time. The only time you can do such is to use your time well. Laziness and procrastinating about doing a particular thing shows that you have no value for time. Sometimes, the opportunity you failed to spot at a particular time and age; might not be achieved. You just have to walk with time to get things done at the right time. There is no other time to accomplish what you need to achieve than now. Give in to time and grow within it to reach your rightful destination in life.
To put time in its rightful place, remember that your life revolves around it. Time is created for every purpose you need to achieve. Never say that there is no time. The idea that comes through you is as a result of the value of time you created for it. When you create no time for yourself, then you create no avenue to engage your mind for productive reasoning. Understanding the timing of anything, gives you an edge over the situation that might arise. When you have control of time, you have control over your life. If there is one thing we should seek to have, it should be to have the control of time over our life. Like Psalm [39:4-5] said, “LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am. Behold, thou hast made my days [as] an handbreadth; and mine age [is] as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state [is] altogether vanity. Selah”.
Though time is of essence in all we do; it should be noted that time can be wasted. When you waste time, you waste your life and seem to delay the manifestation of your dream. Learn to use your time well and not waste it fulfilling other people’s destiny for them. If you allowed others distract you, you will waste valuable time without accomplishing your purpose. Your time should be used to learn a new thing and not wasting it doing nothing for yourself. If you can engage time in doing something reasonable that would add value to your life; you will be better for it. You shouldn’t allow time wasters slow you down but rather you should strive to make time count for you. Your time should be engaged maximally for productivity rather than frivolous things that add no value to your life.
To engage time for productive ventures, you need to let your hands find a legitimate thing to do. Ecclesiastes [9:10-11] said; “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race [is] not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all”. It is when you engaged yourself with time in doing something productive and reasonable that you would learn and get to succeed in whatever you do. Do not mismanage your time; it would do you more harm than good. If you get yourself involved in illegal things; the reality of it all is that when caught, you would have to go in for it and who knows the valuable time you would have spend doing nothing to yourself.
Even in marriage, you need to manage your time, if you failed to take action and correct things when it should be done, then what you are asking for is misfortune. Your family needs your time and quality times are worth spending with your family. Without spending such time; things might go wrong without your knowing and when you get to know of it; it might be too late. Your children need your time; your husband or wife needs your time. You need to pay attention to the secret or open needs of your family. You should learn to carry everyone along and do your best to see that you give a care about your family. It is your responsibility to manage your time well in other to attend to your family needs.
When seeking for a good output to life, it all boils down to the amount of quality time you put in there. If you have a shallow mindset about time; you wouldn’t want to put in your best to get the required result that calls for massive progress. Every moment that comes with opportunity, you need to do something about it. Do not delay in making time your best friend. When you seize time in your favour to do good; then you will reap bountifully. Many opportunities missed are as a result of wasted time. You need to key into time to activate the process of achieving your purpose and destiny in life. Time doesn’t call for delay and that of procrastination but rather it calls for making the right decision and following it up with the needed action.
If you want to develop your mind, you must dedicate yourself to time. Education is power and that power you can achieve if you dedicate your time to study. Your financial achievement is also a function of your time management. When you manage your time well; your finance is secured. Waste no time in thinking that anyone might be after you in your failed financial fortune; when you lack the seriousness for time; then how are you going to manage and build the right attitude needed to make wealth. Time like it is said is money so when you manage your time well, know for sure that money will start following in endless.
To make time your true friend, time wasters shouldn’t be seen around you as friends. Be around serious minded people that are going somewhere and not those who have no value for time. When you come around any of your friend(s) and notices that such seems always to be depressed or often confused about life and can’t take any meaningful decision; it is as good as fleeing from such. Though you can still make them your friend(s) but such shouldn’t be those you discuss serious issues with. You know those whose capacity can’t carry any presumed risky venture by them. Those who would seem to advice you negatively; such are not worthy of your serious time. To get your time valued; mingle with those who will always inspire you beyond limitation. The goal getter should be your true friends. Those who accept no for an answer!
Your time should see you engaged yourself in doing valuable things and not sitting down doing nothing but rather watching entertainment movies and the rest. You need to utilize your time and not waste it through compromise. You can engage yourself in putting down valuable thoughts and ideas that comes to you. Build yourself up to read. When you read try out your own ideas too; you never can tell when those little ideas inside of you can make you become great in life. It takes nothing to tell yourself the simplest truth and that you need to manage your time well. Your time also should be for God. When you serve God with your time too; He gives you ideas that make your life worthy of emulation. Remember that by strength shall no man prevail. It is the grace of the Lord that will always prevail and not ours. When you serve Him diligently with your time; He makes everything beautiful in your life at His appointed time. It will do your life well if you can keep to these words in Romans [12:9-18]; “[Let] love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. [Be] kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. [Be] of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men”.
Destiny is calling and you need to do all it takes within the limit of your time to actualize it. All you need is time to actualize your dream as long as you are still breathing. Do not stop at nothing to actualize your dream. Use your time judiciously to pursue your given purpose in life. Do not put in any lazy attitude towards pursuing your dream. Any delay you put in is a waste of time and if care is not taken, you might not actualize your aspiration. Time you should know waits for nobody. Now is the time to redeem the value of time; go and do something for yourself and stop procrastinating. A word for the wise is enough.
