2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.
4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.
5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
Another aspect of spiritual discipline is the time management. Jesus watches not only what we put in the treasury but also how we use our time. In the words of John Wesley, the master user of time:' Never be unemployed and never be triflingly(unimportantly, trivially) employed.'
In photography, the quality of picture depends, not only on what you put into it, but what you leave out. Similarly, our capacity to 'No' determines our capacity to say ' Yes'. We have to say 'No' to less-er things in order to say 'Yes' to greater things. Can we pass the 'time' test? Can we give 10% of our time back to Jesus daily? He has given us 24 hours, can we give back 2.4 hours to him(prayer, bible study, time spent with disciples and non-disciples)
Make a list of things that you will start doing and by doing so we are not going to have the time to do certain things.
