How Are We Using Our Days?

A 30-year-old person has lived about 11,000 days. 50 years is 18,250 days. An 80-year-old has lived over 29,000 days! What have we done with our days, and what are we doing with our days? God will hold us accountable for how we have spent the time He gave us (Matthew 25:14-30). Will we be justified to tell God we had no time for Him, the very one who gave us our existence? Do we realize how valuable time is, and do we use our time wisely? “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). Do we realize our time could end at any moment? (Matthew 24:44; Luke 12:20). Are we loving God foremost, while loving others as much as we love ourselves? (Matthew 22:36-40). Have we been “baptized into Christ,” and are we walking in the light? (Acts 2:38-41; Galatians 3:26-27; 5:19-24; 1 John 1:6—2:6; Hebrews 10:23-31). Are we wasting our lives by missing the main purpose of our lives? “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; cf. Acts 10:34-35; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Ephesians 5:15-17).

If we have not been using our days wisely, let’s begin doing so!
