01/07/18

Here we are at the end of the first week of the new year already. There are plenty of remarks that have been made about how swiftly time passes. Time flies, seems like only yesterday we did such and such, on and on men have commented about how time slips away so quickly. Well the Bible likens the passing of time in the same manner. Probably many acquired their views from the times it's mentioned in God's Word. It's often attached to the length of a person life time and how it passes faster than a weaver's shuttle. Another remark about time is that it waits for no one. We look back over the years and the times we were young and full of life, only to realize much of it we wasted on chasing the course of this world. Precious years we could’ve spent wisely and applied ourselves to more constructive projects and trades we could have learned. The older one gets, the more you understand how precious time really is and why we need to redeem every minute of it. Just like the song we sing about, only one life to live, only what’s done for Christ will last. One of the 52 weeks of 2018 is gone forever and I hope it hasn't set a pattern for the rest of the year. Of the 168 hours that are applied to our age this year and the steps we are allotted by or Lord have been used up, reckon we used them with great care and wisdom. Oh, I know we hardly give this a second thought, but at the end of the road I'm sure we will say of time that has passed, “I could have done this or that…” The “this or that” might have included visiting someone about their lost condition, or spending time studying God's Word, might be a few minutes one should have spent on their knees for their lost loved ones. Time is passing swiftly and we need to work in God's' vineyard, if we’re going to make our lives count for Him. Let us press ourselves to obeying the Word and being good stewards of the brief time God gives each one of us.
