Engaging God's Gift of Time

Time is often viewed as a commodity. We "have" time. We "spend" time. As a result, we most often see time as limited. We cannot find time. We need more time. But time is not a commodity. God gifts us with time and we discern–wisely or not–how to engage it. This article explores how conceptions of time are culturally constructed, and examines theological and scriptural perspectives on time, to posit a practical theology for how Christian leaders can receive the gift of time given by God and discern how to engage time as God intends.
