How precious time becomes when we have so little of it, we need to reach out and grab the moment!! We need to just savor what we have because time is fleeting by each day! If we knew our time was at hand what would we do differently? I'll bet our thinking would change allot! I'll bet we would even try and contact everyone we could or try and make up for time lost?
Why wait? Why not take advantage of what we are guaranteed, now! Yes we have right now we are not given tomorrow until it arrives. Why do we spend so much time on things that do not matter and worry about what does, and do nothing? We lose so much of what is precious by grabbing hold of a future that is not ours yet!
Jesus said in Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. In other words take time for what is now and not what will be, deal with those things that are certain. As Jesus said, today has enough to deal with don't waste your time on a tomorrow that is not yours yet!
Time becomes precious only, when we value it more then wasting it on what we have no control of. We really need to stop and do an evaluation of how and what we spend our time on, and what causes us to lose so much of it. Take some time today to smell the roses and take in what is going on around us. Just a moment is all it takes for time to become precious again and find enjoyment in the now!
