How Will You Spend Them?

Matthew 19:21 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
You have 86,400 of them everyday. Only you can decide what to do with them. Once they are gone you can not get them back. What are they?
SECONDS. We all have 86,400 seconds everyday. Many use them to pursue wealth, love, pleasure, knowledge. But, we must ask ourselves...Am I spending my time wisely? We have so many non-essential activities in our lives that waste those precious seconds. How do you use your time? Are the activities you are involved in worthwhile? If you only had 6 months to live would you change the way you spend your time? If so maybe it is worth considering. Do we own our possessions or do they own us? What sort of time do we give God everyday? Have you told someone you love them yet today? Why not take 10 seconds right now and express your love to God. I promise that will be good use of them. Then decide how you will use the other 86,390 seconds you have left. Listen, can you hear them ticking?
