carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the
days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16
Imagine that your banker
phoned you late on Friday afternoon to tell you he had some very good news.
An anonymous donor, who
loves you very much, has decided to deposit 86,400 pennies into your account
each morning, starting tomorrow.
That’s $864 dollars a day,
seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year.
Then, your banker adds,
“There’s one stipulation: you must spend all the money for that day in the day
you receive it. No balances will be carried over to the next day.”
So you do the math: $864 a day times seven equals more than
$6,000 each week. Multiplied by 52, that’s almost $315,000 a year that you will
have available to you if you’re diligent to spend it each day.
Remember, whatever you don’t
spend is forfeited.
Now let’s talk about
reality. Every morning, God, Who loves you with all of His heart, deposits into
your account of time 86,400 seconds – which represents 1,440 minutes, which
equals 24 hours each day.
God gives you 86,400 seconds,
and it’s all yours to spend. However,
balances will never be carried over.
Someone has said, “Life is
like a coin. You can spend it any way you want to, but you can spend it only
Your time is like a precious
treasure that God has given you. How you
spend your time adds up to how you spend your life. Making the best use of your time makes the
best use of your life!
God desires for us to spend
our lives passionately pursuing His kingdom!
a great day and keep moving forward!
