What to do with an extra hour?

Today we turn the clocks back an hour, “gaining” an extra hour in our day.  What do we do with it?  How will we spend the extra hour that we have?  Time is such a powerful thing.  It is truly a resource that we are given by God to spend for His glory.  We talk about “saving time” by doing things quickly or more efficiently but in reality we can’t save time at all.  When we wake up feeling sick or just weary, wouldn’t it be nice if we could “save the day” and use it later when we feel better?  But we can’t do that.  We can only spend time.  The other interesting thing about time is that none of us knows how much time we have.  We’d like to think we have lots of time but do we really know that?  The Bible says that life is but a vapor which appears for a little time and then vanishes away.  If you read the obituaries today in the paper, the vast majority of those people didn’t think that they would be in there today.  Yet they used up all their time that they had been allotted.

Time is such an amazing gift that God has given to us.  Let’s make sure that we use it well.  Let’s use it for His glory.
