A Word From The Word

Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. (Colossians 4:5, NLT)

A Word For Writers

Security guidelines recommend that you change your login password every 30 to 180 days. Then, once you change your password, you need to remember it. If you have multiple accounts and multiple passwords, you may face plenty of login confusion. Passwords can add another layer of complications to your busy, distracted life.

The Password: online #devotional for #writers based on Col 4:5 with Word Wise at Nonprofit Copywriter #FreelanceWriting #timemanagement

Nancy, an administrator with a large insurance firm, has found a way to leverage these required password changes and incorporate them into her walk of faith.

Each month, she receives an email from her corporate office, instructing her to change her login password. “I change the password to my most recent Bible memory verse,” says Nancy. This month, it may be Galatians220. Next month, it may be Isaiah4029! (if extra characters are required). And so on.

The habit makes it easy for Nancy to remember her password because she is already in the process of memorizing that reference.

Plus, over time, her routine has allowed Nancy to memorize dozens of verses. Every time she logs on, she repeats that month’s verse to herself. Sometimes Nancy deliberately chooses a verse that God has laid on her heart to help her at work.

Nancy’s routine has had another hidden benefit, too. “A colleague complained about having to change his password so often and asked how I managed it,” she said. “So I told him about my scripture references. And that led to a wonderful discussion about faith.”

In a time when you have less time, you can make the most of every opportunity. Streamline routine tasks to give you more time.

A Wise Word

Streamline routine tasks to give you more time.

A Word To Pray

Gracious Father,

I can get overwhelmed by routine tasks. They seem to pile up faster than I am able to work them into my life. Show me ways to streamline my time. I want to make the most of every opportunity and be a good steward of the time You give me.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.
