Time is a theological issue. The feeling of not having enough time is universal, because we're made for eternity. We're made in the image of God, and for just a speck of time in the whole of eternity we're confined to a space-time continuum on earth. But our very souls yearn for that day when we will be able to spend an eternal afternoon doing an infinite number of things for an infinitely long period of time. In the meantime, however, we are here on this earth, and we must figure out how to make the best use of our time.

This tool is adapted from "Effectively Manage Your Limited Time," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by Dick Towner. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.

This Resource contains all of the following:
