Take Time to be Holy

Most people wouldn’t think of looking to a hymnbook for instruction in time management for our busy world today. But if they did, they might discover a deep, rich hymn of the faith called take time to be holy. It was written in the 1800’s but it gives a message which is needed far more today than it was back then. Listen to the advice the writer gives us in the second verse of this great song:

Take time to be holy,
The world rushes on.
Spend much time in secret
With Jesus alone;
By looking to Jesus,
Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct
His likeness shall see.

Taking time to be holy, is redeeming the time.
