Even when you stop for a while to sit down and rest, there’s always a clock running somewhere in the world. Whether its Time Square, Big Ben or a clock in your house, time never stops ticking. When your time is up on earth, the Lord will send someone else to finish any task that you were unable to complete.
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom, Psalm 90:12.
One of the nice things about time is that after 24 hours everything resets to zero. Subsequently, each day should be a learning process, a chance to improve on the mistakes of yesterday. Solomon suggests that those open to teaching will receive a heart of wisdom.
Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil, Ephesians 5:16.
Like the tragedy at the Fort Lauderdale Airport in Florida, days can turn evil at any point. In the case of today, five innocent individuals were taken from this planet. Life can be cruel when someone who is influenced by powers of darkness exercises free will with the intent to harm others. May God have mercy on those who time has expired, divinely providing for family members left behind on earth.
