I have never been a big fan of Daylight Savings Time. I can move the clock on the wall forward an hour in the Spring and back an hour in the Fall, but my internal clock never changes.
Now that we have moved our clocks forward an hour, we have gained another hour of daylight. While this is true, it has not changed the fact that Father Time is still at work. In his methodical way, tick by tick, he gobbles up the minutes and hours of our life.
In moment of quiet contemplation, the Psalmist wrote about our timely relationship with God: Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90).
Now that we have taken the time to change our clocks, does there also need to be a change in our time? Time expenditures are a good indicator of the priorities in a person’s life. When a person numbers his days, he can see the #1 priority in his life.
I hope this is enough to keep you thinking.
