Dost Thou Love Life?

Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.

A woman once had a dream that an angel was giving her this message:  "As a reward for your virtues, the sum of $1,440 will be deposited into your bank account every morning.  This amount has only one condition.  At the close of each business day, any balance that has not been used will be canceled.  It won't carry over to the next day or accrue interest.  Each morning, a new $1,440 will be credited to you."

The dream was so vivid, she asked the Lord to show her what it meant.  He led her to realize she was receiving 1,440 minutes every morning, the total number of minutes in a 24-hour day.  What she did with this deposit of time was important, because 1,440 minutes per day was all she would ever receive!

Each of us has a similar account.  At the close of each "business" day, we should be able to look over our ledger and see that these golden minutes were spent wisely.

Time is God's gift to you.  What you do with your time is your gift to God.

Remember how short my time is.
Psalm 89:47
