As the ball drops!

Sunday, January 2, 2011 (11:35 am)

Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

This morning as I woke up, I decided to watch the ball drop in Times Square on YouTube. There were thousands of people bundled up in freezing New York weather to witness a few short seconds during which a descending ball of light announces the arrival of a New Year — 2011. These hardy people endured the freezing air to mark the passage of time, but even more, because they were anticipating a "new beginning!" Saying good bye to a tumultuous 2010, they were looking forward to making a fresh start in 2011!

One thing given equally to every person, rich or poor — is time. In 2010, each of us lived 365 days, 8,760 hours and 525,600 minutes. How did you spend it? Reflecting over 2010, I am astounded how quickly the year seemed to pass — almost like the proverbial blink of an eye. And looking back over it has caused me to ask, am I really carefully managing my time…the one commodity I "spend", that I can never buy back?

The psalmist expresses a timely request on our behalf…"Teach us to number our days", so that every one of them truly counts for the Lord! We can't change the past, but we can always improve our time management in the year to come. With so much work to be done, let's apply our hearts to wisdom, and use our time wisely!
