“Therefore, don’t worry about tomorrow
because tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
We often hear “time is money.” But is that
really true? Yes, if we have in mind using
our time wisely, we can earn more money.
Will more money buy us time? No! Can we
save up time like we save up money? No.
Like money, once time is spent, it’s gone!
There is no refund, no exchange, no gift card
to use later. Because we only have time
once, we should be more attentive about
Think about it. There are sixty seconds in a
minute. Sixty minutes in an hour. Fourteen
hundred forty minutes in a day. We all get
the exact same amount. You have chosen to
spend a few of your precious moments
reading this devotion. For that, I thank you!
My prayer is that something I share will help
you enjoy your time because we are all
aware how quickly time flies.
I have a theory about why time seems to
pass so quickly. Some people live in the
past. Their mind is focused on the “good old
days.” Back when they were younger, or
more successful, or happier, or content, or
active, or whatever. They live in memory of
what they perceive to be a better past. But in
doing that, they miss the blessings of today.
And before they realize it, today is gone. It
is already tomorrow. Time flies when you
live in the past.
Others tend to live in the future. They have
their sights set on when they get out of
school, graduate from college, get married,
have children, pay off the house, get the next
raise, retire, etc. They too miss the present
because their mind and heart is consumed
with the future. Happiness and contentment
elude them because those ideals in the out-
there rather than in the here-and-now. Time
flies when you are future focused.
When age catches up with us. When our
bodies begin to fail. When the doctor says
your days are limited, we begin to realize
how precious every moment is. Every
minute, every hour becomes a prized gift.
Isn’t that why we call it the “present?”
“Don’t worry about tomorrow.” Or live in
the memories of yesteryear. Make the most
of each second, each precious fleeting
moment, and the gift of every hour. For we
know how much we “are like vapor that
appears for a little while, then vanishes.”
Make that call to someone you’ve been
meaning to call for a long time. Spend a few
moments thanking God for every precious
gift of time. Tell the ones you love how
blessed you are to have them in your life.
Give away the hugs you’ve been holding
back for a better day. Take advantage of
every moment. Spend your time wisely.
Blessed by you….Bro. Sherman
