“Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day,
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town,
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.”
(Roger Waters, Pink Floyd)

Time is a mind-blowingly precious commodity. What do we do with it?  Are we aware that we will be held accountable for what we did (or didn’t do) with it? The Parable of the Talents (Matthew 24:14) is not just about money — it is about any precious thing God has given us to steward, including our abilities, our money and our TIME.

The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy.  Who is the thief in your life?  Who or what are you allowing to steal the invaluable moments, hours and days of your all-too-fleeting life?  Are you willing to fight for your inheritance, or will you passively allow these thieves to rob you of the unique adventure and fruitfulness God made available to you when He called you by name?

“Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
To serve the King of kings.”
