Measuring Your Life

A unit is a measure, and you know how much would fill a cup. But do you know how much fills a unit of time? Yes, you know how long a minute is, or an hour, a month, but how much fills it?

There is no answer, for there is no rule–it all depends on you!

You are given a space of time to fill. You are allowed to choose how you fill it. How much you invest determines your assets. This is true in money and in time.

The minute you spend will never be again.

Likewise, wasted money brings no return.

Too little thought is invested in a lifetime spent.

Many needs are left unmet, for those who don’t take their life seriously–if you don’t spend it, you will lose it, for time cannot be kept.

Therefore–invest wisely, for you will reap for all eternity–

A time that can’t be measured–time you can’t relent.

“Lord, let me know my end, and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is! Behold, thou hast made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing in thy sight.

Surely every man stands as a mere breath! Surely man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nought are they in turmoil; man heaps up, and knows not who will gather! And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in thee.” Psalms 39:4-7

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom for the future. Many are the plans in the mind of man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.” Proverbs 19:20-21

What is desired in a man is loyalty, and a poor man is better than a liar. the fear of the Lord leads to life; and he who has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm.” Proverbs 19:20-23

“–aim at righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

In the presence of God who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ; and this will be made manifest at the proper time by the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.” I Timothy 6:11b-16
