“Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour” (Matthew 25:13).
If you had to purchase time, would it impact the way you would spend it? The answer is obvious. You wouldn’t waste a moment. No time would be wasted on trivialities. Careful attention would be given only to those things that mattered. The last thing we want to hear is that there is no time left; that it is too late–after the final exam it is too late to study; after the children are grown is too late to be a better parent; after the divorce is too late to make amends. Now is the only time you have to do something effectively.
