Tithing Your Time

It is customary in the Old Testament for people to tithe, to give a tenth of everything they own to the Lord. I was thinking of the concept of tithing and the things we value in life these days and something stood out to me.

We value time.

Think about it. We give only a certain amount of our time and we put a price on it as well. Most people know exactly how much they make in an hour, right? And working more than the dreaded 40 hours a week is just awful!

But, do we give much of our time to God?

An hour or two at church on Sunday compared to the 110 other waking ours in the week (assuming you get 8 hours of sleep each night) is hardly much time focused on God.

Even if you spend an hour each day reading your bible, that pales in comparison to the hours we spend on other things.

There are a variety of ways to spend time with the Lord, such as volunteering, studying your bible, fellowship with other Christians, and many more.  Maybe it’s time to think about spending a little more time focused on God and what He wants for our life, than planning out our own paths and spending our days without Him.

What do you think? Should we tithe our time? What would your life look like if a tenth of your time was spent with God?
