Make the most of your time today and tomorrow, because you may not have many days left. If, and bear with me, if we could know when the end was, and if for example we knew the end was . . . let’s say . . . 6 months from today, would you not make the most of every single day and every single hour?
There’s a cliche I like, and it goes like this:
Live every day as though it is your last, because one day it will be.
Even if I wasn’t basing the argument that “we need to make the most of every day” on the idea that the world will end soon, the reality is that between now and then people like you and me will die every minute of every hour of every day between now and then, so every single life, yours and mine included, has a last day coming. We like to think we’re invincible, but you know we’re not. You know just like me, that any day could be our last. You also know that for the Christian, a day called the “Rapture” is coming soon. How soon we don’t know, but we see the signs all around us that foretold of it’s coming.
Make The Most of Your Time Today and Every Day
We’re living in the most insane time any of us have ever seen, crazier than anything our parents or grandparents saw in their generations. The future of America has never hung in the balance as it does now, and violence, hatred, chaos, riots, murder, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, fires, and war all are realities that seem to be accelerating, not slowing down.
Tell me, would you put all your hope in politicians? I didn’t think so. Would you put your hope in yourself? No, because you don’t control the rest of the world, the food supply, the economy, whether we have a famine or another pandemic. You don’t control any of those things that can snatch your life away from you in a second.
This is not just worldly wisdom. Here’s wisdom from God on the subject, and why we really need to get serious about how we use our time and every single day now.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Colossians 4:5
Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. James 4:14
I recommend that you use every single day to do the most important things you’ve ever done in your life. And since you don’t know which day will be your last, I also suggest you get right with God now. I don’t think gambling is wise when Hell is your losing hand, and that’s hell for eternity.
Now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
Repent from your sins, accept Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for your salvation, and trust him by faith. Get ready, because both you and I will see our last day . . . someday. And make the most of your time today.
