E. G. White’s Quotations on Time

Do not think that because you do not manifest decided hostility to Christ you are doing Him service. We thus deceive our own souls. By withholding that which God has given us to use in His service, be it time or means or any other of His entrusted gifts, we work against Him.
Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 279.3 (Ellen Gould White)

The heavenly messengers are doing their work; but what are we doing? Brethren and sisters, God calls upon you to redeem the time. Draw nigh to God. Stir up the gift that is within you. Let those who have had the opportunity to become familiar with the reasons of our faith, now use this knowledge to some purpose. —Historical Sketches, p. 288.
Christian Service, p. 90.2 (Ellen Gould White)

Parents should teach their children the value and right use of time. Teach them that to do something which will honor God and bless humanity is worth striving for. Even in their early years they can be missionaries for God. —Christ's Object Lessons, 345.
Christian Service, p. 31.3 (Ellen Gould White)

Regularity and Dispatch—God has no use for lazy men in His cause; He wants thoughtful, kind, affectionate, earnest workers.... Persons who have not acquired habits of close industry and economy of time should have set rules to prompt them to regularity and dispatch.—Testimonies for the Church 4:411 (1880).

Time is an entrusted gift of God and is to be diligently employed in the service of Christ. Be Like Jesus, p. 91.3

“Through the power of the Holy Spirit many will accept the divine principles. Converted to the truth, they will become agencies in the hand of God to communicate the light. They will have a special burden for other souls of this neglected class. Time and money will be consecrated to the work of the Lord, and new efficiency and power will be added to the church.”—The Acts of the Apostles, 140.

I must meditate upon the word of God night and day and bring it into my practical life. The sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, is the only sword which I can safely use.” The Adventist Home, p. 180
