"Walk in wisdom… Redeeming the time." Colossians 4:5
Time is one of life’s most precious commodities. Yet I am afraid we do not give ample considerations to its importance. Much harm can be done in even a few seconds. But remember much good can also be accomplished. A father took his son to the carnival and waited impatiently while the boy rode the merry-go round until his last dime was spent. Then he said "well my boy, you spent all your money traveling, but where did you go?" is this not the experience of many of us !We are not concerned about where the journey of life is taking us, but only in wasting the time pleasantly. To clutter up our lives with common things and leave outside heart’s gate the Lord of live and life itself. How we need to be aware that we are stewards of our time here on earth. How essential to spend time with the Lord in prayers and reading His Word daily, to use our time ,as many have free time in the summer month, to serve Him and witness for Him.
Have time with the Lord and for the Lord or you will withered.
"Life at its best is short, time flies so very fast, Lord helps us not to waste this day, last it should be our last."
"Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth while the evil days come not… " Ecclessiastes 12:1
