Time is an interesting concept. Consider this:
Our lives are controlled by time. Our lives are dictated by the rising and setting of the sun; the hands on the clock; the movement of the earth that gives us days, nights, years and seasons.
We are slaves to time. Whether you wear a watch (old school) or carry a telephone, you are constantly checking it to make sure that you are where you are suppose to be at the time you are suppose to be there. Time dictates our every movement.
We each have exactly the same amount of time. At least in terms of days. Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. No one gets 25 and no one gets cheated out of even one minute.
So what can we do with time?
The Bible give us some insights into time. For example it says:
Time is a gift from God.
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things. Romans 11:36
What do you have that you did not receive? 1 Corinthians 4:7.
The time you have on earth is short.
What is your life? It is like a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. James 4:14.
Time as we know it will end someday.
Then will come the end. Matthew 24:14.
You will give a report of how you used your time on earth.
Each of us shall give account of himself to God. Romans 14:12.
You need to use your time wisely.
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16.
Each moment of time is something that you will never get back. How you use it cannot be changed.
While none of us uses all of our time wisely, it is possible to use more of your time wisely today than you did yesterday. You can’t get back time once past but you can move forward in life with a determination not to waste such a precious commodity.
Redeem whatever time you have left – use it for God’s glory and as a blessing to other people.
Stay in the Word
