Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400.
It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever
part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do?
Draw out every cent, of course!!!!
Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new
account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to
use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is
no drawing against the "tomorrow". You must live in the present on today's
deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!
To realize the value of:
ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.
ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.
ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won the silver medal in the Olympics.
The clock is running. Make the most of today!
Treasure every moment you have! And remember that time waits for no one:
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present!
God has given us the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.
What you do with your life is your gift to God!
Heavenly Father; "teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."Psalm 90:12
The important question is, "Do you understand that Jesus took your place? He died on the cross, taking the penalty for our sins upon Himself, so that we could receive forgiveness of our sins and the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus!
If you have understood that Jesus died in your place and have already received His gift of eternal life, Praise the Lord!!
If not, please take the time to receive Him right now!
We encourage you to refer to the LIFEQUEST "Food for Thought" topics of Salvation and Gospel which will further explain what He has done for you, how much God loves you and show you how to receive Jesus as your Savior and Lord.
God bless you and have a great day!
