Time Waits For No Man

To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed a final exam.
To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of a week, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who missed the train or bus or plane.
To realize the value of one second, ask a person who survived an accident.
To realize the value of one millisecond, ask a person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.
Time waits for no one.  Treasure every moment you have.                 Selected

     Time is a gift.  We do not deserve it nor have we earned it. What an important gift. Because, time is the very stuff out of which life is formed. Too often we measure time by years, months, days or hands on a clock. But, time ought to be measured by heart beats, breaths and dreams.
Time is an opportunity.  Within time, decisions are made. And, in decisions destiny is decided. God gives each of us this precious raw material out of which choice is made.  Time is your opportunity, do with it what you will.  But, just remember this, good things are paid for in advance and bad things are paid for afterwards.  Make time do for you, don’t just do time. 

     Determine with the Apostle Paul, “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.  But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind, and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”          Philippians 3:13-14

     It is the response we make to Jesus Christ in time that determines our eternal destiny.
    God has given us the Bible so that we might make our decisions in line with His will.
    Make right use of time for His glory, to honor Him. With our faith in Christ, we can face time and eternity without fear, knowing that God is with us both now and forever.

  1. Grandpa,

    How true! Time is just something that we take advantage of, maybe this year it can be something that I spiritually take advantage of 🙂

    Love you and praying for you and grandma!

  2. Mr. Smith,

    Thank you for sharing. It is so often that we forget how precious of a gift time is and how much it goes spent in our own business instead of glorifying Him in every minute and every second of our time. Thank you for reminding us to stay focused upward.

    Blessings to you and your family this new year!

  3. I meant to say busyness in my previous message. Ooops!
