“Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed” (Romans 13:11).
I confess that I’m perplexed every time I hear it asked or see it posted, “Where does the time go?” Why are so many surprised by the passage of time? Time is doing what time does…it goes. The seconds tick away, the minute and hour hands turn, and the calendar rolls through the months and years with unceasing regularity. The greater question in regard to time is, “What are you doing with it?” Consider how much time is wasted by individuals waiting until next Monday or the new year to do or start something that should be done today, only to awaken on those days and discover that they look and feel no different than today. As the people of God, we don’t need resolutions, but rather, the discipline to be who we are called to be…disciples.
