Scriptures: Psalm 118:24, 90:5-6
Every morning there is a God who controls this universe, who deposits into the bank of your life 86,400 seconds of time every day--1,444 minutes--24 hours. God deposits that same amount into everyone’s account and nothing is carried over to the next day. You can spend it any way you want to, but you only get to spend it once and you only get to spend it on a daily basis. That is why when you really get down to it life is just about time. It has never been more important, more valuable, and so precisely measured as it is today. In this message, Dr. Merritt spends precious minutes on the subject of time--how we can manage and prioritize our moments to make the most of them, for God's glory.
"God is adamant that every day we are given we should enjoy that day and enjoy the time we have in it. In other words, every day take time to smell the roses. Don’t let the bad things that happen in a given day take the joy away from all the good things that happen to us every day." --Dr. Merritt
