Time Is Precious

Ephesians 5:15-16 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,(16) Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Luke 21:26 Men's HEARTS FAILING THEM for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
It seems that the older I get the faster time seems to pass.  I spent years running from the time I got up until after midnight each night and never seeming to have enough time to do everything.  Several heart attacks later I have learned some valuable lessons.  We need to concentrate on the things that are important and we need to use our time wisely.
I remember when almost everything was closed on Sunday and a 24 hour business was almost unheard of.  It seems like these days almost everything is geared to a 24 hour 7 day week and still people are running and rushing trying to squeeze everything into their day.
Simply put we seem to spend our time doing that which is urgent and we don't seem to spend time doing the things that are really important.
What is important?  Only the things we have done out of love for the Lord will last for eternity.
Our kids might forget some of the so called quality time we spend with them but the time we spend teaching them about Jesus will be with them forever.
The older I get, the more precious I realize our time really is.  We need to redeem the time and spend it to glorify God.
