The Steve Miller band sang these words, “Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’, into the future.” That’s what time does right? Next year becomes next month, becomes tomorrow, becomes today, and then it is just a memory. The Bible says it this way “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” – Psalm 90:12
Our days are numbered. Each of us gets 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, and 7 days in a week. Hebrews 9:27 says, “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” We have one appointment in this life that we cannot miss, that’s the day that is appointed for us to die. What are you going to do between now and then?
We love to procrastinate. Just seeing the word makes me want to put something off! Someone once said, “I started to procrastinate, then decided to put it off.” But procrastination can be a form of disobedience. “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” James 4:17
When God tells us to do something and we don’t do it we can call it whatever we want but the Bible says it is sin. Time can’t be stored like money in the bank. Really, the only thing you can do with time is use it or lose it. What are you going to do with your time? Who are you going to use it for? “Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’, into the future.”
