Time is infinite. Your time is not.
Your time, at least in this mortal state, is clearly finite. Limited and defined by a specific number of years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds that you will live, and only God knows how much of each you are allotted.
So you should often ask yourself some simple questions.
- What is it that you most actively pursue?
- What is it that you most desire?
Are your two answers the same?
- What is it that you find occupies the majority of your thoughts?
- What thoughts would you need to think to achieve that which you most desire?
Are these two answers the same?
Imagine if you were to achieve the greatest possible success of that which you most actively pursue, but to the exclusion of all else. How would you feel?
Life is necessarily demanding, but one of the key challenges we’ve been given, and by which we shall be judged, is by our stewardship over those years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds that we have been given.
Our actions fill the books of life, and out of them, we shall be judged (Rev. 20:12), and where our treasure is, there will our heart be also (Matt. 6:21), for no man can serve two masters (Matt. 6:24).
So occasionally, we should measure the worth of our pursuits, and correct our course where necessary, that by so doing, we might find ourselves continually progressing toward exaltation.
That when we stand before our Master and review the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds of our lives, we’ll see amidst all the meandering, a constant overarching progression toward perfection. Be ye therefore perfect (Matt 5:48).
