"Time goes by so fast." So we say repeatedly, especially as we watch children grow and change daily. The Bible affirms this truth, and it brings me constantly back to the choices we make each moment to waste our lives or use them for God's glory. Watch television/call a hurting friend. Shop/make a meal for someone who's ill. Surf the web/mentor a child in the inner city. Play a video game/rake the yard of a widow. Go out to eat/invite a neighbor over to dinner. Buy a new toy/give away money to a single mom. Be entertained/study the Scriptures. "Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow." (Psalm 144:4) Help me, Lord, to use the time You have given me in a way that shows the world my hope is in You.
