STOP AND THINK – Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. (Jean Luc Picard, a television character)

The statement was made in a television show, but it does give us a valuable reminder of the importance of time. We all have a limited time on earth, and we should value it and use it wisely. It’s good for us to evaluate our use of time, since it is so fleeting and uncertain, and to recognize that we must make the best use of it while we can.

You do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. … You ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that. (James 4:14-15)
