Have you ever thought about what it means to be a good steward
of your time? Maybe you can recall getting to the end of a day and
thinking, “Why did I waste so much time?” Joining me on the show to
talk about time stewardship is LTC Gil Jacobs, USA (Ret.). He was also my guest back in episode
18, when we talked about transformational leadership. Today, LTC Jacobs and I will talk
about his new book called “Time for Christ.”
// Book giveaway
LTC Jacobs has given me three copies of “Time For Christ” to
give away for free. If you’d like to be entered for a chance to win
one of the copies, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and mention
“Time For Christ book giveaway” in the subject line. Deadline to
enter is 30 September. Winners will be selected and notified by 4
// What we talked about
Here are a few of the questions LTC Jacobs and I discussed:
- What led you to write the book?
- What does stewarding your time look like? Why is it important
to be good stewards of our time?
- Talk more about the 7 ways of time stewardship that you wrote
- Spend time with God.
- Our time should demonstrate a love for other people.
- Be a good steward and enjoy what God has given you.
- Be trustworthy with your little portions of time.
- Count the cost.
- Live in harmony with God’s plan.
- Rest, and remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.
- There’s a good leadership principle you write about that is
centered on Proverbs 27:23. What does this look like for military
- The Stewardship Model: what is it and how might leaders use
- From principle 5, Count the cost: “Can you afford to add a new
activity or commitment to your day?” How can we determine when it’s
appropriate to take on new tasks or activities? How can we best
determine when to eliminate something from our list, or learn to
just say no?
- If listeners took away only one thing from our conversation
today, what would you hope it would be?
