Clocks everywhere. On the oven, in the car, on the wall, on our phones. We pay so much attention to what time it is, we tend to forget to pay attention to how we use that time.
My husband and I are going out tonight. If only for a quick drink, we need to spend some time together. If we don't spend time on our relationships, how can they grow?
I tend to waste time. I spend it like there will always be a tomorrow. But there won't always be a tomorrow. My baby won't always cuddle with me. My sister won't always be available to chat. I won't always have the ability to hold a guitar or a camera or a broom.
This post is getting deeper and poking me rather more than I anticipated. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be a downer or anything. Let's look at things another way:
Time is a gift. The years, the days, the minutes we have should be treated like something precious.
"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil." Eph 5:15-16
Let us enjoy the time that we have, helping people and serving as we should. Rather than make hay, let us do good while the sun shines :)
