1st Principle of Time Use
Do we have no time for important things? Does the Bible have an answer? The first principle of time use is in the Ten Commandments, “Remember the Sabbath.” (Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 5) For Christians the Sabbath is understood in principle and not the letter, because the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. (2 Corinthians 3:6) The Sabbath principle is bodily rest one day in seven, worshiping weekly in a church community, agricultural land rest, forgiveness of debts, and annual festivals rehearsing key events of our faith. The Sabbath principle is good for body and soul. The first principle of time use is planning key weekly time for God.
