Why is it that so many people are in a hurry these days?Jesus Christ said: "Many Shall Run To and Fro" (Dan 12:4)
Have you ever said to yourself that time seems to pass so quickly now?
If you have children, they seem to grow up all too fast.
Has it seemed to you that many people are in a real hurry to get to wherever they are going these days?
A while back, a friend of mine and I were on our way to a movie. Another car pulled up next to us with a screech of tires. The instant the light changed, another screech of tires. This happened over several lights all the way to the movies. You guessed it - they were exactly six people in line in front of us.
I'm not sure exactly what they accomplished by this except for proving that they were a bonehead.
Jesus Christ said "Many Shall Run To and Fro". If this "emphasis" on what I like to call the "hurry up and wait syndrome" is any indication, this is yet another sign that the times are right for the return of Christ to the world.
If "Hurry Up and Wait Syndrome" isn't "Many Shall Run To and Fro" - I don't know what is.
Solution?So, what do you do about it?
Just take the time to "smell the roses". Why?
Let's look at the value of time.
To realize the value of one year - ask a student that failed a final exam.
To realize the value of one month - ask a mother who gave birth prematurely.
To realize the value of one week - ask a soldier on leave.
To realize the value of one day - ask a daily wage earner who has children to feed.
To realize the value of one hour - ask a person who was late for work.
To realize the value of one minute - ask a person who has missed their flight.
To realize the value of one second - ask a person who has survived an accident.
To realize the value of one millisecond - ask a person who won a -silver- medal.
To realize the value of one nanosecond - ask a space scientist.
We begin each day with 86,400 seconds in the Bank of Time.
Every day opens a new account.
Every night the account is closed out.
If you fail to use your day's deposits - the loss is yours.
There is no going back.
There is no drawing against tomorrow.
You -must- live in the present day on today's deposits.
The clock is running.
Make every second count.
Redeem your time.
Even Jesus said: "Save tomorrow for tomorrow and think about today instead."
