How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

how-live-on-24-hoursHow do you get started living productively?  How do you avoid wasting time or your life?  I would like to share a resource that has helped me in the past which I hope will help you as well.  It’s a little book entitled, How to Live on 24 Hours a Day written by a man called Arnold Bennett.  You can download it on Amazon for FREE.   Let me share a few quotes from the book just to whet your appetite:

It is always the man who has tasted life who demands more of it.  And it is always the man who never gets out of bed who is the most difficult to rouse.

Most people sleep themselves stupid.

…Nine out of ten men would have better health and more fun out of life if they spent less time in bed.

Time is a great deal more than money.

Philosophers have explained space.  They have not explained time.  It is the inexplicable raw material of everything.  With it, all is possible; without it, nothing.  The supply of time is truly a daily miracle, an affair genuinely astonishing when one examines it.  You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically full with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life!  It is yours.  It is the most precious of possessions.  A highly singular commodity, showered upon you in a manner as singular as the commodity itself…No one can take it from you.  It is unstealable.  And no one receives either more or less than you receive.   Continue reading

The Sabbath and Man’s Chief End

Remember the Sabbath 2The Sabbath principle has at its very heart (in terms of its application), man’s chief end, in other words, the purpose for which man was made. The Westminster Shorter Catechism Question #1 states: “What is the chief end of man?” The answer goes as follows: “Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” Even this is rooted in the very nature and character of God who takes great delight in glorifying and enjoying Himself. So the Sabbath serves to remind all men (Christians and non-Christians) of the very purpose for which God created them, “to glorify and enjoy” Him. When we observe the Sabbath, we do it primarily for this reason.

Special Application to the Christians
But while the Sabbath principle applies to all people, it has a very special application to Christians because of the redemption that they have received through the Lord Jesus Christ. For this reason, believers are certainly obligated to observe the Sabbath not only because that is more consistent with God’s nature and character, but also because it is consistent with their new nature and character in Christ as His redeemed ones. Christians are to be in the forefront of honoring the LORD God with their time.   Continue reading
