Myles Munroe: The most common gift God ever gave any human is time. When I use the word common, I’m referring to the fact that all humans on earth, the only thing that we are given, that is common to everyone is TIME. All of us have different height, different weight, different colours, different families, different ethnic backgrounds, from different cultures. But one thing we all have in common is TIME. What you are and what you become depends on how you use your TIME. You and I have the same amount of TIME. The billionaire and the begger, both has 24hours everyday. The old and the young, the black and the white are all given the same amount of TIME everyday. TIME can not be stopped but humans can control it. You can not stop a day, you can not stop an hour, they have no respect for you but you can control how it will be used, which means even though TIME is unstoppable, it is controllable and what you do with it, determines what you will become. I think about time a lot because TIME IS LIFE. Time is a blessing or a curse depending on how you manage it. If I ask you, how old are you? What am asking you is, what is your LIFE? And you will say my LIFE is 80years old or 30years old of 15years old. We measure life in terms of TIME, we define life by TIME because life is determined by what we do with TIME. Life is qualified by TIME, life is also the passing of TIME. Life is also stopped by TIME, when you die, TIME stops. When you die, you move out of time into what we call eternity. Time is temporary but life is eternal.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF TIME
Time has the beginning and an end. Time is also given to us to measure existence of life, to define life, to measure the quality of life, time was given to measure the purpose of our life while we live. I thank God for time but time has some limitations
”JOB 14:5.. Man’s days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed”,
Time protect us from living in a permanent condition… You will hurt, grief all your life in the death of your family, time will deal with that. You will not be seen around because that man did not marry you, there is another man on the way with fantastic life. Time changes everything, nothing is permanent! Life is the only commodity on earth given to every human being, time is therefore the only commodity every human possesses. So, the key of life is, what you become in life is determined how you used the time you have and that why we use the terms like “spending time”. Time is a currency, every human has the same amount everyday and time like currency must be spend. Time is use to buy life. Whatever you are, you spend your time buying it. Time is so powerful, that whatever you invest your time in, you become. Time can be abused, time can also be lost just like money(it didn’t take you closer to your goals, vision, did not accomplish the things you wanted, you spend it on things that didn’t count). Time is more important than money, that’s why the business man says “time is money”. Time can be depreciated just like money.
Every hour is important! My question is “what do you spending it on?”. You can reduce the value of your life by the things you spend your time with, who you spend your time with, where you spend your time or day, can devalue your time. We are victim of time! We can’t stop time, we can’t control it, the only way to make time our friend is to manage it.
