What you do today is important, because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. (Heartsill Wilson, automotive executive)

Heartsill continues: “I can waste it or use it for good . . . When tomorrow comes, the day will be gone forever, leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not a loss—good, not evil. Success not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.” Because time is such a valuable commodity, we must be frugal in the way we use it.

Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. (Psalm 39:4)
