Sacred Truth Friday: Time
Today's devotional is about time.
Psalm 102:13,25-27 You will arise and have pity on Zion; it is the time to favor her; the appointed time has come.
Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.
Time is not our enemy, even though it seems like it is when there is not enough time to complete everything or when waiting for a blessed hope. But God, in his wisdom and mercy, has given us time. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, seasons and years.
And we should use our time wisely. Bless and encourage others. Spread the Gospel near and far. Comfort the broken-hearted and let our light shine. Never waste the time we've been given. Use it wisely.
So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.
