So many things to do with so little time. We sometimes feel a day is not enough to do all the things we want or we should do. The younger generation even says “YOLO,” which means You Only Live Once, hence they always wanted to live their lives to the fullest, most of the time though, according to their own free will.
Our life here on earth is temporary. We can earn money, but we cannot earn our time. As the psalmist says, our days are numbered. How do we number our days? Are we making use of it with a purpose or are we just wasting it?
Paul reminds us to see that we walk carefully, not as the unwise, but as wise, making the very most of our time because the days are evil. Therefore, we should not live carelessly, unthinkingly, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is (v. 15-17 AMP). Instead of wasting our time, let us try to redeem it. The world can easily distract us, it can always make us chase on things that are temporal. We need the discipline to stay focused on God and to seek His will, if not, we can be easily distracted and later on realize we have been spending our lives in the wrong path.
Today is a gift from the Lord. He breathed on us with his life, gifts, and talents and it is our responsibility to use it, be fruitful, and be the person whom He created us to be. Every day, let us reevaluate and refocus our life, asking God where to invest our time wisely and how He can use us to be a blessing to others. May we run with a purpose in every step we do!
Make the most of every chance you get to live for God!
