“Effectively Redeem All Time” (E-RAT)
The Bible even has something to say about using your time wisely.
Ephesians 5:15-16 NKJV
“See then that you walk circumspectly, (Heedful of circumstances and potential consequences; prudent.) not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
Upon reading this, I immediately took a long hard look at my life. I thought of the traffic jams, all of the time wasted sitting at red lights; the long lines at the fast food restaurants… Which is sort of an oxymoron. (More moron than oxy.) Then I stumbled upon research which came to the conclusion that…
In Your Lifetime You Will Spend…
84 months in the bathroom
72 months eating
60 months waiting in lines
36 months sitting in meetings
24 months playing telephone tag
8 Months opening junk mail
6 Months waiting at red lights
4 Months shifting in your seat
1 Month searching through your desk clutter
As soon as I read that article I knew that I could help anyone effectively redeem all time! Especially those in ministry! I’ll be a famous! I’ll write a motivational mini-book and sell 7 Trillion copies and go on to be a famous keynote speaker along with Tony Robbins and Robert Bakke.

Are you ready to reclaim literally days in your lifetime?
Here’s my tip on how to “Effectively Redeem All Time” (E-RAT for short):
Throw away all junk mail without opening it.
Time saved 8 Months!
Now that you threw away your junk mail you have nothing to read in the bathroom.
Time saved 84 months!
Combine eating and waiting at red lights.
Time saved 78 months!
Cut to the front of the line!
Time saved 60 months!
Order an automatic transmission when you purchase your new Hybrid SUV.
Time saved 4 Months! (Probably not what they were talking about when they said “shifting in your seat” but hey, work with me I’m funny!)
Send your Golden Retriever to the meetings. Give her an email address and have her take notes for you. She can then send you the updates about each “important” meeting. Allie@7TrillionVideos.com
Time saved 36 months!
Delete all phones from your presence.
Time saved 24 months! (And in my case, more than that.)
Keep your desk clean and organized!
Time saved 1 Month! (And for some of you WAY more than that!)
There, just think of it! I just saved you more than 24 and a half years of your life! (In rollover minutes that’s approximately 12,744,000 minutes of usable time.) If you are a pastor you can use it for ministry! You will now be able to sit back, relax and study the Bible! You have plenty of time to write over 24 years of Holy Ghost inspired messages! (Like this one… sort of… Well maybe like this one?) Why? Because the phone will never ring again! (Woo-hoo) There will be no dinner to fix, because you cut in line in front of that nasty ‘ol church lady when you were getting your food at McDonald’s so you could eat while you were waiting at the red lights on the way home. (Whew… Take a breath!) The junk mail is now gone which also leaves your desk clean; thereby resulting in less time reading in the bathroom!
I’m taking donations toward my first book. Send all donations to my PayPal account. And don’t use the excuse that you don’t have time! Because I know better.
Now where did I put my phone?
