Daily Service: Time is Yours

Daily Service – Time is

Daily Service – Time is yours

 

I saw this from another blogger recently. Thanks to Steve’s Country for bring it to mind again.  This is the poem I found online:

86,400 Seconds – Poem by Jim Yerman

If we were given 86,400 dollars every day to spend any way we could,
And at the end of the day what we didn’t spend would be lost to us for good,

What would we do? We would not have to think too hard or engage in a long discourse
We would take that money, go right out and spend it all, of course!

Each day we are given 86,400 seconds, it has been this way for centuries.
86,400 seconds every day- do with as we please.

There is one caveat, you might say this gift comes with a hidden cost
Whatever time we don’t use wisely, at the end of the day is lost.

Yes, it’s free and it’s ours to spend, no strings attached…however
Whatever time we lose today is time that’s lost forever.

Yet such is the nature of this gift- true our daily seconds don’t accrue
That when we wake the next morning- each day we start anew.

I believe the lesson we are shown here- since there’s no way to extend them
The 86,400 seconds are less important- than how we choose to spend them.

God thinks so too.

Matthew 6:27 (ESV) And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

The question is what are you doing with the time God gives you?  Are you working for his kingdom or for your own pleasure?

Remember the other day we were talking about was that we should be different, but not strange?  This passage equates evil with strange, perverse behavior.

Proverbs 21:6-8 (KJV) The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right.

Proverbs 21:6-8 NKJV Getting treasures by a lying tongue Is the fleeting fantasy of those who seek death. The violence of the wicked will destroy them Because they refuse to do justice. The way of a guilty man is perverse; But as for the pure, his work is right.

Proverbs 21:6-8 (AMP) Securing treasures by a lying tongue is a vapor driven to and fro; those who seek them seek death. The violence of the wicked shall sweep them away because they refuse to do justice. The way of the guilty is exceedingly crooked, but as for the pure, his work is right and his conduct is straight.

Perverse Heart

21:6. Verses 6-8 refer to the wicked—their lying, violence, and devious actions. Wealth (a fortune) acquired in dishonest ways (by lying) will not last (cf. 10:2; 13:11); it will fade quickly like a vapor (cf. 23:4-5; 27:24). And a deadly snare is the way some Hebrew manuscripts, the Septuagint, and the Vulgate read, but most Hebrew manuscripts read “seekers of death” or “for those who seek death.” The thought is either that money gained dishonestly will ensnare rather than bless a person, ultimately bringing him to his death, or that seeking money dishonestly is like seeking or pursuing death.

21:7. People who are guilty of violence to others will find that it will boomerang (just as evil talk does, 12:13); eventually, they themselves will be dragged away like fish caught in a net. In Habakkuk 1:15 the verb gārar (drag… away) is used for catching and dragging fish in a net. The wicked will be punished because even though they know what is right they refuse to do it.

21:8. Devious and upright describe the conduct of the guilty and the innocent, respectively. The Hebrew words for “guilty” and “devious” occur only here in the Old Testament. This verse, in antithetical parallelism, contrasts the crookedness of guilty people with the uprightness (straightforwardness or “rightness”) of godly people. In 20:11 “innocent” (zak) is translated “pure,” and “upright” (yāŝār) is translated “right.” Interestingly in 21:8 the Hebrew for “guilty” is wāzār and immediately following it is the similar-sounding Hebrew word for “butthe innocent” (wezak.
