OUR LINGERING TIME
Goodbye & Hello
Time... especially today is such a wonderful gift from God! Every tick of a second is precious. Every minute is intrinsic and every hour is exchangeable. One year has an equivalent of 12 months; 52 weeks; 365 days; 8,760 hours; 525,600 minutes or 3,153,600 seconds. Time is everything free! The issue is, your choice and my choice- how to spend time productively!
When .... Parents take care and train their children.
Teachers spend much time in preparation for knowledge & teaching.
Children are obedient to family rules & take part in chores.
Students listen and study hard!
Employees & workers excel in their field and are loyal.
Employers motivate & develop subordinates.
Drivers drive responsively & thoughtfully.
Scientists dwell more on research & discoveries.
Habitually... Spending time with God our Maker! in prayer, Bible study & singing.
Spending quality time with family, relatives, friends & neighbors.
Taking time to rest, relax & play games or scheduled recreation.
Take time out for the pets and welcoming strangers.
Harness God given abilities, skills & potentials.
Take time to help the helpless & share the Gospel to the lost souls!
Being responsible & accountable for every word, action & thought.
Develop making daily schedule & long-range plan..
[add some more...]
Time can all be wasted in
> self-serving; pleasures of this world; unmindful of
the passing hours
>spending much time in television & hobbies; busy-
bodies in other men's lives; uncontrollable desires;
>buying stuffs that are not needful
>care free lifestyle; not taking care of family
especially with spouse and children
>no plan but just exists (eat to live & live to eat);
>wallowing in guilt and self-pity;
>leave out God as if he/she can manage without Him;
>living in mediocrity & apathy;
>Well, this list can go on and on however they all eat up God's
HELLO HAPPY NEW YEAR & GOODBYE PAST YEARS!
Time will never, never return, we can either make good use of it until we are able or
simply waste it...
