There have been seasons in my life when it seemed that time stood still, unmoving. The death of my dad, my two brothers, my mom.

We all get one chance every day. The same 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Hug your spouse. Play with your kids and grandkids. Spend time with the elderly. Call a friend. Tell someone your story.

Time is precious. Don’t waste a minute of it.

The God of the Bible is a God of purpose. He created time and we should learn how to manage it and use it to give to others, show God’s love and invest in our eternity by thanking God each and every day for the time He’s gave us today.

2 Corinthians 6:2 – “For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”
