Overcoming the "No-Time" Excuse
How many times have you heard someone say, "I'd like to read and pray more, but I just don't have time"? The truth is that we all have the same amount of time — 68 hours in every week. But where does it go?
Let's take a look ...
Sleep - 8 hours a day / 56 hours a week / 112 hours remaining.
Full-time job - 8 hours a day / 40 hours a week/ 72 hours remaining.
Commuting - 2 hours a day / 10 hours a week / 62 hours remaining.
Eating - 2 hours a day / 14 hours a week / 48 hours remaining.
Family & Entertainment - 2 hours a day / 14 hours a week / 34 hours remaining.
Miscellaneous - 2 hours a day / 14 hours a week / 20 hours remaining!
The next time someone says they don't have time to for God in their life, whether it be for attending church services or simply for reading the Bible, print this chart off and help them see that they still have an extra 20 hours each week, even after completing life's most important tasks!
