In the book of Ecclesiastes, particularly in chapter 2, we read about what Solomon thoughts were about the meaning of life. Riches, wisdom, the delights of the sons of men, desires, joys… It is all vanity, he once argued. The wise and the fool, both will die, he extended. Time in this life is short. Time is here, it just left and it won’t come back again.
We can’t get our times back. Once time has passed, we can’t recover it. Time never stops. Be careful to seek endless material positions at the expense of losing your most precious commodity — Time.
Researchers state that we live in the busiest generation of the last 400 years. Being busy doesn’t necessarily make people effective, as TD Jakes would say. Are you doing the things that you were created to do with your available time? Or are you seeking riches, desires, joys… with your time?
Be careful with being too busy for the sake of business or to engage in the pursuits of making money or activities that are taxed at the expense of your finite time.
In the Bible we learn, “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” 1 John 2:17. What have you done for the Lord lately with the gifts he has given you? Spend some time reflecting on this one, folks.
God loves you. He expects you and me to use our time not with pursuing vain worldly tasks but with dedicating our time to Him so we can spend our time in eternity.
