It’s about time

Gold and diamonds wouldn’t be considered very desirable if you could pick them up like stones in a field or shells on the beach.

They are valuable and treasured because of their scarcity.

There is another thing that is scarce, something else that deserves to be treasured.

Time.

We often treat it as if it is infinite but we are only here for a little while. Once it is gone, it is gone forever. Why, then, do we waste it in so many different ways?

I think of opportunities to do the right thing lost, of unspoken words of love and encouragement to friends and family, of grudges I harbored far too long, of unkind words I’ve spoken.

Time lost can never be regained.

Let’s be more careful not to squander this precious resource God has given us.
