Making good use of the time, because the days are evil.
Tick-tock … the clock rings every day… time goes by in seconds, minutes, hours, days, years and so on. Time keeps moving and never stops to wait for us. Have you ever recognized how blessed we are because every day God gives us 86.400 seconds, 1440 minutes, 24 hours. A year consists of 366 days. Let’s try to count it, if you are 15 now then God has invested in you 131.760 hours. Convert it to seconds and you will be surprised how much time God has given you.
In fact, most of us have failed to use time sincerely. Ephesians 5:16 said, “Making good use of the time, because the days are evil.” If one let his time go to waste, he will lose many chances to get more in his life. As Mario Teguh once said, “There is no dream comes true without action of your time.”
Historically, time in Greek is called kairos or Lord of Time. He runs swiftly, balancing on the razor’s edge, bald but with a lock of hair on his forehead, he wears no clothes; if you grasp him from the front, you might be able to hold him, but once he has moved on not even Juppiter [Zeus] himself can pull him back, the brief moment in which things are possible. Accordingly, Bible demanding you guys to make good use of time.
As Christian youth, you can make good use of time by living a good Christian life. If you are a student keep doing your duties, act your good hobbies but do not commit sexual intercourse or using cocaine like most teens nowadays are doing. Remember: time goes by quickly, so you need to make priorities, take time to plan your activities, arrange them well and flexible. That’s the way to make good use of every second of your daily time.
“Jesus, nowadays is evil, many bad things are done deliberately by many people. So I ask you to help me be a different one. Help me to obey your instructions by making good use of my daily time to glorify your name. Amen “
