You cannot kill time without injury to eternity. – H. D. Thoreau
Jesus told his disciples they MUST work while it is day, for it would soon come a time when they couldn’t. OUCH!
Alarms, bells, whistles, chimes, etc. We’re surrounded by gadgets that each day remind us of the time. Time is the most precious commodity on planet earth. It is even more valuable than money. We can get more money, but we cannot get more time. Each morning we all awake with the same 24-hour timeframe with which to work. How we spend it will well determine where we go when our time is no more. The key is not to waste it on fruitless endeavors, dead-end roads, harboring resentment and hate, or meaningless living; but rather invest it in lives and projects that will make an eternal difference. Martin Luther King, Jr. said “the time is always right to do what is right.” And that time is now, for none of us is getting younger by the day.
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” – Psalm 90:12
