"The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away... So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
(Psalms 90:10, 12 KJV)
God is Awesome and says we should treasure time as a valuable commodity. We number our years, but God says every day and every hour is so precious we should treasure it and number it. Time is more valuable than money.
A. W. Tozer (Christian pastor and editor) wrote: "Time is a resource that is nonrenewable and nontransferable. You cannot store it, slow it up, hold it up, divide it up or give it up. You can’t hoard it up or save it for a rainy day–when it’s lost it’s unrecoverable. When you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection." So, understand that you should treasure time as the most valuable asset you are given in this world besides Jesus Christ. It will soon fly away and never return. Time is more valuable than money, but it is like money because it can be spent and invested. But if you don't use time wisely, you lose it, like money. For Time will never slow down nor will you get any back!
We should consider the word Invest. What will you do with that extra Time you now have? We have all kinds of time-saving appliances, like microwave ovens. We love to take short cuts in order to "save time." Show me some of the time you’ve saved–where is it? You can’t save it; you can only spend it or invest it. Invest it in helping people to know Our Awesome God. Use it wisely and you will get interest on your investment in heaven, where those people will live. Use the time you spend on the T.V. or an electronic game spreading God's Word to all the people around you and reading God's Holy Bible. Time can be spent with Our Awesome God in prayer and doing His work is time wisely invested and the investment is grand.
You should use your time and your investment wisely so you will receive your rewards when your home will be Our Awesome God's home - Heaven.
