Have you ever heard of a guy that used to write music named Wolfgang Mozart? If you had lived in his day, the chances are you might not have heard of him.
Mozart was a true child prodigy. He began composing his great works at 5 years old. By the time he died at age 35 he had created some 600 works. Many of those works are still enjoyed around the world over 200 years later.
But when Mozart died he was penniless and in debt. Almost no one went to his funeral. He was buried in an unmarked pauper’s grave which has since been lost.
Mozart’s life illustrates the principle of someone who started well but didn’t finish well. Unfortunately, many Christians will fall into this same category because of poor time management. To avoid being one of them, focus today on the vision God has given you. Then plan your day to fulfill that vision so you’ll redeem the time.

He and his wife Carrie live in Salisbury NC with several of their 12 children.
