Each morning when I start my day, I have an email from Google waiting on me. When I open it, I find my schedule for that day. I don’t have to wander through the day wondering what I am supposed to do. Thanks to Google, I already know.
The person who waits for the right time to do something fails to realize that time is a precious commodity that quickly rots when wasted and spoils the opportunity of the moment. It doesn’t make any difference if you think you are living in the best of times or the worst of times, this is the only time you have—it is the time of your life.
You have 60 minutes in every hour; 1,440 of them every day; 10,080 of them every week; and a whole bunch of them in a year. If you will manage the minutes of your life, the hours will take care of themselves.
The time of your life is so important, the psalmist said: “Teach us to number each of our days, so that we may grow in wisdom (90:12).” The idea is not that you assign a number to each day of your life. The concept is that you get the most out of each day, so you are living it for the glory of God.
Carl Sandburg captured the essence of this discussion when he said: “Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”
It is the time of your life, so spend it wisely.
