You Cannot Waste Time

It is absurd to speak of “wasting time.” We cannot! It is as if to say to the fish in the sea, “Do not waste the water.” We have no power at all over time -- it “marches on” regardless of anything we can or will do. We are born into a world that is governed by time and after we are laid to rest in the grave, time continues until God sees fit to end it.

We can and we do waste ourselves. What we could be; services we could render; powers we could use; words and deeds we could use in doing good; kindness we neglect to show; happiness we could enjoy — all become waste as we waste away our lives.

The starting point on the path toward useful living lies within our easy grasp. Make now a time of resolution and determination to live a life to the glory and praise of God. --DRS
