WHAT TIME IS IT?

28 Jul

JAM
4:14  Why, you do not even know what will
happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little
while and then vanishes.

We are occupied with the theme of time. Often when teaching a class I look up and ask, “How much time do I have left?” Actually, no one knows exactly how much time he has left. We wear watches and watch clocks and other instruments of time so that we may adjust our routines and synchronize our activities to maximize the use of the time that is allotted for each specific task. Most of us have learned to multitask in order to optimize our time observing and guarding it because there is much to be done in a little time.

SA
90:12  So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto Wisdom.

The word of God says that our days are like smoke or a shadow that declines. Each person is given a certain allotment of days on the earth. There is no disparity between a rich man and a poor man because superior purchasing power is useless. Time can not be bought and there is no pool or reservoir from which one can extract additional time. When it is gone it is gone.

 PSA 39:4
LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is:
that I may know how frail I am. 

 

 The psalmist petitions God for the wisdom to use his time wisely. Time is our greatest asset so we must spend it wisely. Our desire should be to invest our time in pursuits that produce the largest yield and accrue the greatest benefits in eternity.
