Fresh Hope – Day 267

Imagine that a bank credits your account each morning with £86,400. It’s carries over no balance from day to day. At midnight, the account resets to another £86,400 and deletes whatever part of the previous day’s balance that you failed to use. There’s no guarantee you will ever be given another  £86,400. If that were the case, what would you do? Draw out every last pound, of course!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is Time. Each morning, you are given a gift that is credited to your life of 86,400 seconds. 

Every night, what you have failed to use is lost. 

Time carries over no balance from day-to-day. Time allows no overdraft and you cannot hold on to what you did not use the day before. 

If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. 

I challenge you today to take a long hard look at your life and ask yourself, ‘where does all my time go?’

How and where do I spend it?

How much time am I wasting?

How much time am I spending just on me?

How much time am I investing in others?

How much time am I spending with God each day?

Everything in life has to have a balance to it, but I’m sure that you will agree that it’s hardly a balanced life sitting in front of a TV every night.

Wake up.  We only have one life to live!

Make an important decision today to not waste another minute.  

There’s an old saying that says ‘time stops for no man’; today has already partly been spent. What are you going to do today with rest of your 86,400 seconds? 

Make your life count.
