You have a bank account. Every day $86,400 gets deposited. No balance is carried over from day to day. No cash balance is allowed. Every evening cancels whatever part of the money you have failed to use during the day.
What would you do? Draw out every cent of course!
Well, each one of us has such a bank. It is called TIME.
Every morning it credits you 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off as a loss whatever of this you have failed to invest for a good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the records of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against “tomorrow”. You must live in the present on today’s deposits.
Invest it to get the utmost in health, happiness, and success. The clock is running. Make the most of today.
“Time is your life. When you waste your time, you waste your life.” – Rick Grubbs.
It is a clever trick to think that time and life are separate things. If we can be convinced of this, we can mistakenly underestimate the value of time. If you do not see time as your life, it will be easy to waste a minute of it.
One day you wake up as an old man or an old woman, looking back on life frustrated. “Where did the time go?” “What happened to all of those things you wanted to do as a young person?” This is what happens when you fail to realize that when you waste your time you really are wasting your life. A wasted life is simply the accumulation of a lot of wasted time.
To redeem the time is to rescue it from going to waste. The starting point for redeeming the time is to realize that time is your life and it is impossible to waste time without also wasting your life. Since nobody wants to wake up with the tragedy of a wasted life behind them.
Here are six reasons it is so important to redeem the time to think about and act upon.
1. Time is limited.
2. Death is certain.
3. Our use of time brings eternal consequences.
4. Time is not recoverable.
5. Time is our most valuable earthly possession.
6. We must give an account for how we spend our time.
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Galatians 6:7
Sow worthwhile seeds. Have you been putting something off you know needs your time? Make that a priority today.
