TIME: This is something that we each are allotted just so much of…..none of us know just how much. As we grow older… we began to realize (but don’t like to think about) that the “time is running out.” Think of it in terms of a roll of toilet paper. The last part runs out pretty fast.
Life is not like a ‘time clock at work.’ We come in at a certain time, punch-in…and leave at a certain time…punching out. Often times …we are given great latitude as to the time frames in life. Not so… with … the ‘end of our time.’ God chooses the ‘time frame’ of life. Regardless… that some may feel that ‘they control their own destiny’… they, simply ‘do-not.’ That said: When one chooses to live a life of evil, and refuses to accept Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior… then …YES… that person is ‘in control of his destiny’… but ONLY because God ‘allows’ humankind… to choose ‘eternity in hell’ if they so wish. Likewise… they can opt for eternity in Heaven… always a CHOICE.
So…what are we doing with our time?
Use it wisely. Use it to help our fellowman. Use it to LOVE those we care about… and those, even, who could care less. Use it wisely in terms of our career. Use it according to God’s Law.
As advised to us in…Hebrews 6:11-12 – We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who… through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
Don’t wait until ‘the last day,’ or when the clock has ‘quit ticking’ to get your spiritual house in order. Plan ahead.
For ‘me and my family’…we CHOOSE the Lord God …Blessings…cjlb…8/16/2017
