How old are you? Do you remember when you used to think people your age were “old?”
Someone said, “You know you are getting older when policemen look like little boys or when your doctor, your boss, or even the President is younger than you are.”
“Where does time go?” you ask. The answer is time doesn’t go anywhere. We are the ones who move through time and we move very quickly. In the Bible, Job said “my days are swifter than a weaver’s beam.” Consider the brief amount of time it took to get where you are today. Then think of how quickly the remainder of your life will pass by. That should challenge you to want to use all the time you can to serve the Lord.
Because no matter what your age, you just don’t have much time left. That’s why you need to redeem the time.
