Today has been given you by the Lord and he allows you to do with these 24 hours as you will. But keep in mind the admonishments from Scripture to make the best use of your time.
Paul encouraged the Colossians to make the most of their opportunities (Colossians 4:5) and of their time (Ephesians 5:16). Solomon reminded his readers to give their best to every thing they do (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
Paul viewed every day as moving us closer to the time of our final salvation “…knowing time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now, salvation is nearer to us than when we believed” (Romans 13:11). In the very next verse, the apostle encourages us to emphasize our spiritual preparations when he writes, “The night is almost gone and the day is near. Therefore, let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light” (Romans 13:12).
As we have mention in our previous articles, many have faced great challenges. Today, as the children return to school and summer comes to a practical end, let us great the new times with vigor and renewed commitment to our Lord.
