Have you ever thought that our perception of reality is so limited simply because we’re human?
This is especially true when we contemplate an atom, the Universe, or eternity, but ironically we’re perplexed by the finite things too. Scripture tells us…
Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Luke 12:7
Can you guess what that number actually is? How would you calculate it? It seems like a question they’d ask at a job interview for Google.
The number itself isn’t significant in our daily lives, but the fact that the number exists, is very significant.
Everything in our lives is numbered. Including life itself. Simple truth: Our days are numbered.
What we do with our time is significant then because it means that we are choosing one thing over another.
Another way of looking at it – on average, Americans read 200 books in their lifetime (which is kinda pathetic). But even if you read 1,000 books in your lifetime, there are almost 20 million books in the Library of Congress! Choosing to read one, means you’re ultimately not going to read another. You could say the same thing with movies.
What’s the point of all of this? Time is limited – make the most of it.
Be the Men.
