3. Ponder the following verses from Galatians and explain what they tell you about your use of time. How is time management an example of “reaping what we sow”?

Gal 6:7 – “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (NIV).

Gal 6:8 – “Let us not become weary in doing good, for that proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (NIV)

4. Psalm 90:12 says, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (KJV). Explain the relationship between wisdom and “numbering our days aright,” or using time well?
