Opinion: Should you be tithing your time, too?

By Greg Gerber

If someone looked at your checkbook to see where you spend your money, he would probably have a good idea of what you valued most in life.

But, there is a commodity that is far more valuable than money, and that is time. It can never be saved or replaced, but it can be wasted, lost, spent or invested. We all have exactly 525,600 minutes available to us every year.

What if we saw our time as a treasure and sought to tithe 10 percent back to God. Could you invest 144 minutes a day – or just under 17 hours a week – in pursuit of things that matter to God?

I’ve been pondering that question for quite a while and, yes, it seems that we could. And when I do, I am richly rewarded with a better attitude, less guilt and more joy in my life.

Here are some ways you could tithe your time back to God by investing in his Top 8 priorities.

    Really like your blog posts, Greg. Thanks for sharing what’s on your mind! For me, you have heard the saying “time is money.” When I tithe my income I feel it is similar to tithing my time, because I am exchanging my time for money that I give back to God. However, I completely agree on giving your time as well. Since this is all about aligning your life to God and his kingdom, it just makes sense. Thanks for the encouragement to do that more.
