In his book, “Measure your Life” Wesley Duewell makes the following observation about the way we spend our time:
Life is an investment. God planned it that way. For every hour we sow in our earthly life, there will be millions of years of reaping in eternity. No life will ever end. Once we are conceived in our mother’s womb, we will never cease to exist. Death does not end existence. Nothing that a person can ever do can shorten his existence or cause it to end.
Mr. Duewell gave us a very profound thought. Think of it- Millions of years of reaping the consequences for one hour of time in this world.
What are you planning to do with the next hour of your life? Before you settle in to watch another television program, consider the fact that what you do in the next hour will have millions of years of consequences. That might make you want to redeem the time.
