Did you ever consider how rich you are? You are credited 86,400 dollars every morning! That’s crazy, you say? Well, you have 86,400 seconds each day to spend, as you see fit and every one is more important than dollars!. Every night-time writes off as lost whatever you have failed to invest to good purpose. Time carries over no balance; it allows no overdraft – each day is a new account! You can make more money; but you can’t make more time! Treasure every moment. You can’t save time, you can only invest it. Invest wisely. God gives us all our resources; he requires us to manage them. Manage your time sensibly and Enjoy your time – Celebrate life, live each moment to the fullest, it is a gift from God!
What is valuable in life? Spending your time on something that will outlast it. What outlasts your life? The life of others, for one. One hundred years from now, it won’t matter what car you drove, what kind of house you lived in, how much you had in the bank; nor what your clothes looked like. The world may be a little better place because you were important in the life of a child. Well, you say, all my kids are grown – or I don’t have any kids. Yes you do – they are called the Our Savior Church family! Take the time to know them!
Ecclesiastes 3 says: ‘He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men… 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.’ Godliness is the result of a disciplined spiritual life. But at the heart of a disciplined spiritual life is the disciplined use of time. Ephesians 5:15-16, paraphrased in The Message – “So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!”
