Time is the one element of life that is common ground for everyone, and the way we spend it will greatly reflect what we value. Each day that we live we have 24 hours, or 86,400 seconds to use to invest our lives. How are you investing your time?
In Job 32:7 a man by the name of Elihu said, “Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.” Each day that we have lived and each day that we will live, by the grace of God, will write a message. The real question is, will the message we write each day be one of “wisdom” or waste?
As we come to Psalm 90:1-4, 10 & 12, we find that since life is short, the greatest thing we can do is ask God to teach us to value each day, so that we can live each day investing each hour, each minute and each second wisely.
C. T. Studd wrote the poem, Only One Life, Twill Soon Be Past. Each stanza of the poem ends with two lines: “Only one life, twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
