“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.”  Revelation 1:3 NIV

Read:  Revelation 1:1-8


“Time is a great teacher, unfortunately it kills its own students.”   This is a quote we all should commit to memory.  Time is the one thing none of us have enough.   Each day, from the moment we are born, we are one day closer to death.


I have heard it said, we live our lives backward.  When we are young, we have vitality but little wisdom and usually not a lot of common sense.  As we age with wisdom, we have less time and less energy to use our wisdom.

Perhaps, GOD gave us youthful energy so we could repeatedly correct all our mistakes.  Then he made us wise in our old age so we could help those younger with their mistakes.

Wisdom comes from GOD.  Do you have the time to learn from the only real TEACHER?   There is only one answer.  Do you have to think about your answer?

Will your last words be; “Oh time, oh precious time, how can this be?” when there is no more time for you?   You know what you need to do today…this minute.   Do it!

Today’s prayer:   “JESUS MY LORD, Thank YOU for giving me this life to live.   I want to make the most of the time YOU have given me.  Help me today to correct my mistakes and to lay them at YOUR feet for all eternity.   Amen.”
