Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Our Time Bank
Imagine there is a bank which credits your account each morning
with $86,400, carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to
keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the
amount you had failed to use during the day.
What would you do?
Draw out every cent, of course! Well, everyone has such a bank.
Its name is TIME and the banker is GOD. Every morning, He credits you
with 86,400 seconds. Every night He writes off, as lost, whatever of
this you have failed to invest to good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft.
Each day He opens a new account for you. Each night He burns the
records of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is
yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against the “tomorrow”.
You must live in the present on today’s deposits.
Invest it so as to get from it the utmost profit for His glory!
The clock is running. Make the most of today.
