I’ve probably never met you. But I know two things about you. I know that you were born. And I know that you have not died yet. That means you’ve already lived a certain amount of time and you still have at least some time available to you.
The time you have already used can be thought of as hardened concrete. It can’t be changed. That time is settled for all eternity. There was a time it could have been molded, but today it is set forever.
The future however is like fresh concrete. You have a short window of time to mold it into something useful before it sets for good. As you consider the options of how you will spend today, consider what you want your creation to look like when you view the hardened product from eternity.
God said life is like a vapor. It appears for a moment, then vanishes away. The sooner we understand that, the more likely we’ll be to redeem the time.
