‘No amount of money ever bought a second of time.’
This week I thought it would be a wise decision to subscribe to Disney Plus so that I could finally watch ‘Avengers Endgame’. While I use the word ‘wise’ in an extremely loose sense, in the preceding statement. There was a lot I liked about the movie. Tony Stark’s one liners never seem to disappoint. One that I appreciated and have been thinking about, particularly in our current situation is, ‘No amount of money ever bought a second of time.’
While money can not buy us time, it does seem that a pandemic can for most. Listening to the media and talking to people from church, the first thing we seem to want to do is fill our time back up with tasks and new hobbies, with little to no consultation with God.
What would your new found time look like if you were to first consider passages such as Mark 13:32-33 “Now concerning that day or hour no one knows—neither the angels in heaven nor the Son —but only the Father.“ Watch! Be alert! For you don’t know when the time is coming. When speaking about the present time, the bible always refers to using it in light of eternity.
So instead of packing our time with new tasks and hobbies, would it not be better to use it to set our priorities and better equip ourselves with things that have its fruits growing in eternity?
Prayer of the Day
We give you thanks for your comfort and assurance during this COVID-19 crisis. Thank you that the government has implemented restrictions that appear to be working. We pray that we will adhere to the restrictions and not become complacent.
We thank you Father that you are with us and reminding us each day of your blessings and goodness. Above all, we praise you for Jesus – for the wonderful sacrifice on the Cross. Because of his death and resurrection, we are redeemed, and he has conquered death. Death has lost its sting and we have no fear of death. We live in the secured hope of eternity with you, O Lord.
To You be all glory, honour and praise. Amen.
