A member of the National Executive Council of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Rev. Dr. Nana Anyani-Boadum has urged Ghanaians to use their time judiciously so they could add value to their lives.
He said, most people spend time aimlessly on the internet among other unproductive things which does not add value to their lives but make them disable.
“Someone who is disable is a person who is physically strong and has all the potentials to utilise his or her time and has wasted it, but not someone who is physically challenged,” he said.
Value of Time
Speaking on the theme “Value of Time” last Monday, he noted that, many people believe they came to this earth with nothing and will go with nothing, but it is not true.
Refuting the notion of many, Rev. Anyani-Boadum who is also the Founder and General Overseer of Jesus Generation ministries (JGM) pointed out that, “I want you to understand that, the very moment you were born, you were in possession of one important asset called Time.”
He noted that, time is the only thing on earth which is equally shared by rich or poor and cannot be cheated by anyone, adding that, rich people do not have more time than the poor.
The man of God explained, in case God gives someone 80 years on earth, the moment the person is born it starts to tick so every moment must be used wisely.
Rev. Anyani-Boadum stressed that “we all spend 24 hours in a day, whether you use it or not it will go waste because it has been credited into your account.”
Utilise your Time
“Poor personal planning, wasting time on social media, watching movies which does not add value to your mind, joining friends to gossip among other things are all time wasting which does not add any value to your life .they are all time stealers which must be avoided,” Rev. Anyani-Boadum advised.
Sometimes, he said, “you allow certain people who do not have clear purpose in life, come to sit with you and waste your time physically and emotionally. Choose your priority and be intentional about your priorities.”
He added that, if an individual does not manage or use his or her time judiciously, the person would be disgraced in the end.
“The only thing you do without rest is when you are doing nothing, some people can sleep the whole day. When you are lazy, you do not rest because, you are not doing anything that seeks for rest,” the man of God emphasised.
Making reference to the bible, the Superintendent Bishop of JGM indicated that, there is a difference between parable of the talent which is found in Mathew 25:14-25 and the parable of the minas in Luke 19: 11- 19 because, in the parables of Minas they were 10 and the money given to them were equal while the parable of the talents they were only three (3) and the talents given to them were not equal but according to their strength yet given the same time.
Advising Ghanaians Rev. Anyani-Boadum noted that, “God has given each and every one abilities, potentials, and skills to operate with, but immediately you compare yours to others, that is when you think yours is small.”
