October 12- The Measure of a Moment

Make the most of every opportunity. Colossians 4:5 

It seems like much time is spent on things that are limited in their ability to weather the test of time. Somewhere along the way I picked up the phrase, “Is this duplicate-able?” (That’s technically not an official word.) This word reminds me to invest in those things that will carry on long after I’m finished with whatever it is I’m doing at the time.

The other night there was a sporting event on the television I really wanted to watch. But as I watched I couldn’t help thinking about other things I could be doing with this precious block of time that would have true significance in the grand scheme of life.

I am not telling you what to do concerning your TV, cable, or favorite sports team, for that matter. What I desire to communicate is that each of us should aim toward making the most of the time we’ve been given. Don’t waste moments you can’t get back doing a whole lot of nothing. Make every moment count. One day each of us will stand before the One who gave us our lease on life. We will give an accounting of how we spent His time, tools, and talents. He’s gracious, but He also rewards faithfulness. So, make the moments of today count for tomorrow.
