Others wiser than me have looked into the pages of Scripture making applications about time that have been good reminders for me not to procrastinate but see “time” as a resource given by God to use wisely and invest for eternity.
Time . . . an earthly trust which, if invested wisely, will produce eternal treasures.
Time . . . a limited resource extended only by giving the first part back to God.
Time . . . a daily treasure which attracts many robbers.
Time . . . a current opportunity to be right before the Lord.
Time . . . an open window, to share the gospel, that will one-day close.
Time . . . a test of maturity revealed by what I do with my free time.
Time . . . a test of character revealed by what I do in secret.
What time is it for you? The Bible speaking in generalities says “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, . . .”
I am almost 60 years old. That means that maybe I have about 10-20 years of time left. In all probability 80 % of my time has been spent! I can not go back and reclaim or regain time but I can invest the future days God gives me. When I decide about my priorities and use of my time I have found that the above statements are valuable in helping me live with out regrets. I hope they will help you too.
