Our days, as God gives them to us–are like beautiful summer fields. The hours are like trees with their rich fruit, or vines with their blossoms of purple clusters. The minutes are like blooming flowers, or stalks of wheat with their golden grains. Oh the endless, blessed possibilities of our days and hours and minutes–as they come to us from God’s hands!
But what did you do with yesterday? How does the little acre of that one day look to you now? What are you doing with your time? Every moment God gives you, has in it a possibility of beauty or usefulness–as well as something to be accounted for. Are you using your time for God?
“Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life!” Psalm 39:4
