The old saying, “Time is money” resonates with many people. After all, those of us who work for a living exchange our time for our wages.
But there’s a huge difference between the two. First and foremost, you can bank money or you can inherit it, but the time you are given is all that you will ever have.
You can, and should, do good things with money through your church, the Red Cross or whatever, but contributing your time is more heartfelt.
You can spend money on your kids to send them off to a world class boarding school, but spending time with them on school work and after school activities is more precious. Kids may not like to hear that you can’t afford a particular item, but they understand. However, if you don’t share your time when it would be possible to do so, that’s very different.
I think when we face our God, He will but much more interested in how we spent our time and be less interested in what we did with our money.
