The other day as I was walking and praying, I noticed a small bird that had been ran over on the road. One of the things I thought about was the fact that this bird’s life ended prematurely; it most likely didn’t die of old age. Then I thought of my life and how uncertain the time of my death is. None of us are guaranteed that we will see tomorrow on this earth.
The number of days we have on this earth is not as important as what we do with the time we have been given. Ephesians 5:16 challenges us to “redeem the time” which means for us to make the most of every opportunity. We should be making a difference in the world around us.
This journey should start by choosing to become a follower of Jesus Christ and to follow His example of changing the world around Him. His time was not spent on selfishness but on making a better way for the lives He touched.
None of us know how much time we have left but we do get to choose what we will do with that time. Are you making a difference in the world around you with the time you have left?
