Consecrating Time

WHEN you entered into solemn covenant with the Lord, you consecrated your whole being to His service. Your time, then, is not your own, but the Lord’s. If you waste it, or spend it unprofitably, you rob God; for it is one of the talents which He has intrusted to you as His steward. You are not at liberty even to employ it exclusively for yourself; but you must glorify God in the use of it, which you will do by employing it in the way that will be most beneficial to your whole being, and to your fellow-creatures.

Harvey Newcomb, from the book YOUNG LADY’S GUIDE to the Harmonious Development of Christian Character
