There are many things in this life that are valuable. But one of the most important values of life is often overlooked, time. It is a precious commodity for once it is used, it is gone forever.

Here is the GEM: we all have been allotted time; some shorter than others. However, one of the best uses of time is to learn to number our days so we may strive to know the will of the Lord and walk in it. It will be there, we find the best use of the time allotted to us; full service to Him, prepared and helping others to prepare to meet Him when our time is up. May our year be filled with “growing in the grace and knowledge” of God’s will.  Happy New Year to everyone.

So teach us to number our days, That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.

Psalms 90:12

Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.

Colossians 4:5
