"See, then, that you walk circumspectly, redeeming the time, because the days are evil."
Eph. 5:15,16
 
Are we misusing the golden nuggets of time that God places in our hands each sunrise? The average life of a Christian is 75 to 80 years. In general, he spends  6 months in worship, 6 years in eating, 9 years in amusement, 7 years in dressing, 6 years in traveling, 19 years in working, and 23 years in sleeping. Yet sometimes we hear our friends say, "I wish I had time to read my bible and pray and witness."  You have it! Each morning 24 hours are . . .

Yet sometimes we hear our friends say, "I wish I had time to read my bible and pray and witness."  You have it! Each morning 24 hours are presented to you; you must never be too busy to sit at the feet of Jesus to learn of Him, nor too preoccupied to go out and serve Him. Remember, at the judgment seat of Christ we will have to give an account of what we did with our days and hours, which can never be repeated.
 
One of granddads poems was, "We go this way but once, O friend of mine; so why not make the journey well worthwhile, and give to those who walk along with us a helping hand, a word of cheer, a smile. We go this way but once to get more out of life, undo the wrongs, or speak love's words we knew but did not say. We go this way but once. Then let us make the road we travel blossomy and sweet with helpful, kindly deeds and tender words, to smooth the path for bruised and stumbling feet."
 
With this new appreciation of the value of time, let's determine to make our days count for God.
 
We are but minutes, little things,
And each is furnished sixty wings.
We are but minutes, use us well,
For how we're used, you'll one day tell.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Only ETERNITY will reveal whether we have made the right use of time.
