Daylight savings time threw me for a loop. For some reason, my phone doesn’t automatically sync to show the correct time. My watch is synced with my phone. My husband’s phone does automatically correct the time. This led to an interesting exchange, as I thought he was behind schedule, and he thought I was rushing him to leave.
The Bible says, “Teach us to number our days.” I honestly don’t believe the Lord was telling us to keep our eyes on the clock. That being said, the Bible doesn’t specify how to number our days, either. Some people take that to mean that we should live each day to the fullest. Others take it to mean that the future is not promised. While both those things are true, they have much more to do with the quality of our lives, rather than the quantity of time we have.
I posit that we ought to spend a lot less time counting, and a lot more time caring. The time we spend taking care of one another is an investment. It is not time wasted. So today, as you are checking things off your to do list, take a few minutes to check on the people around you. Call a friend you have not talked to in a while. Help someone in need. It will definitely be worth your time.
Today, I pray that whatever time we have today, that we use it wisely.
