He is patient with you,
not wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to repentance.
Since everything will be destroyed in this way,
what kind of people ought you to be?
2 Peter 3:9b, 11a
We all know time is precious. So what do you do to keep time from robbing you-from stealing your life from you? We can make the most of each moment. After all, we decide the amount of time we are willing to waste. Many times we have much more time than we realize. I’ve learned the hard way to not look at what time I don’t have, but instead at the amount of time that I ‘spend’ on meaningless things. Track that for a week and you may be rather surprised, or possibly appalled, as I was. Yes I was appalled at myself, specifically at the amount of time, money, and talent I was willing and able to waste. Let not what is useful be burned up each day.
