Psalm 90:12

If We Had to Buy Time

Consider this: “If we had to buy time, would there be any difference in how we would spend it? Would the days of our lives be used more wisely?” That’s what time management consultant Antonio Herrera asked the participants in a seminar he conducted on the subject. Then Dr. Herrera became more specific. He asked, “What if you had to pay in advance $100 an hour for the time allotted to you? Would you waste it?” The answer should be obvious.

Of course, we can’t put a price tag on the minutes and hours we possess. They are given to us freely. But that doesn’t excuse us from using them conscientiously, carefully, and wisely. The giver of time is God Himself, and that places a far greater value upon it than any monetary figure could suggest. We must therefore use our time intelligently, taking advantage of opportunities it provides for us to serve the Lord and to do His will. - R.W.D.

New Day

This is the beginning of a New Day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or grow in its light
and be of service to others.

But what I do with this day is important because...
I have exchanged a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes,
Today will be gone forever.

I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it.
