CAN YOU SAVE A MINUTE?

I NOTICED A CAR RUNNING A STOP SIGN AND CROWDING INTO TRAFFIC. LATER, THE SAME CAR ON THE HIGHWAY RECKLESSLY CHANGED LANES OVER AND OVER. LATER, THE SAME CAR WAS STOPPED IN A LINE OF CARS ON THE EXIT RAMP JUST A FEW CARS AHEAD OF ME. AFTER ALL THE EFFORTS TO SAVE TIME, THE DRIVER WHO HAD ENDANGERED HIS LIFE AND OTHERS OVER 45 MINUTES IN HEAVY TRAFFIC WAS UNABLE TO SAVE ONE MINUTE.

IF YOU COULD SAVE A MINUTE A DAY, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THEM? IN A YEAR YOU WOULD HAVE SAVED OVER SIX HOURS. DO YOU PACKAGE THEM TOGETHER AND PUT THEM ON A SHELF OR ARE THEY LOST AND FORGOTTEN ? DO YOU REALLY SAVE THEM?

TIME IS PRECIOUS. OUR EARTHLY LIFE IS ALREADY MEASURED. WHEN GOD IS READY TO TAKE US HOME, WE WON’T BE ABLE SAY; “LORD, I HAVE SAVED UP SIX HOURS. CAN I LIVE SIX HOURS LONGER?”

OUR TIME ON THIS EARTH IS KNOWN ONLY BY GOD AND IS MEASURED DOWN TO THE LAST SECOND. OUR TIME WITH GOD IS ETERNAL AND CANNOT BE MEASURED…IF WE HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. WE DON’T NEED TO ASK FOR THE SIX HOURS. GOD HAS PREPARED US A PLACE WHERE THE MINUTES AND HOURS NEVER END.

“HUMBLE YOURSELVES, THEREFORE, UNDER GOD’S MIGHTY HAND, THAT HE MAY LIFT YOU UP IN DUE TIME.” 1PETER 5:6 NIV
