*TOPIC: THE GREATEST TREASURE*
*TEXT: Isa 40:6-7*
_A voice says, “Cry out.”And I said, “What shall I cry?””All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass._
One of the greatest treasure we have on earth to fulfil our mandate is time. This physical life is temporary hence we must manage this resource called time effectively.
The simplest definition of life is the period between birth and death. So, it has elapsing time. Be conscious that time is never cheap, it is very expensive. Time is the unit in which life is measured. You should spend time like you spend your money. Once it is finished, your transaction in life ends. This means you cannot do anything in life again. For example, if someone is very hungry but has no money, he will not be able to buy food even if there is abundance of food in the market. Likewise, no matter the good things you plan to do in life, once your time finishes, then nothing is left again. The fellow is out of the game. Your time is counting every second. Develop time consciousness. Once your time is over, all your wishes remaining are impossible. If you still have time i.e your life still remains, all things are possible for them that believe.
Be accountable for everything you spend your time on, else, life will just be a waste. The clock never rests, so your time is counting continuously. Make most of it. The most expensive resource on the earth is time. It cannot be bought with money. Both poor and rich have 24 hours in a day. No one can extend his own. What an expensive commodity! Let your time worth something to you. He who wastes your time is bent to waste your life. Everyday gone means your life on earth is less by a day. Once you celebrate a birthday,it means a year is gone out of your life on earth.You will not be forever young, you will not be forever youth,make most of the advantages of each stages.
Form the habit of making a worklist for each day. Set goals for each year,month ,week etc.This is the way to be accountable with time and make most of life.
Father ,I receive the wisdom to make effective use of time so as to fulfil your mandate for me in Jesus name.
