默想:

“人若知道行善,却不去行,这就是他的罪了。”(雅417 

静思:

一看到“拖延”二字,我就想“推迟”我要说的事。

有个人说:“推迟”始于“拖延”。你会不会这样呢?

“拖延”是不顺服神的一种形式。当神告诉我们要做的事,我们没有去做时,我们会用各种花言巧语为我们的行为“贴标签”(美其名曰)。但,这样做是犯罪。

每天你有1440分钟。时间不会停止,日子一天一天过去。你不能叫时间“停一下”。时间不能像钱那样,可以存在银行里。七十年代的一首热门歌曲一开头就这样唱:“如果我能把时间存储在瓶子里……”你做不到,真的。你唯一能做的,要么是利用时间,要么是浪费时间。

行动:

摩西在他写的最古老的诗篇中,说道:“求你指教我们怎样数算自己的日子,好叫我们得着智慧的心。”(诗9012)有人做诗曰:“一寸光阴一寸金,钻石也来比光阴,浪费光阴白亏损,光阴一去不回头。”以弗所书516告诉我们:“要爱惜光阴,因为现今的世代(充满)邪恶。”这是一个邪恶的世代,务必珍惜每一分钟。

BIBLE MEDITATION:

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”James 4:17

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

“Procrastination.” Just seeing the word makes me want to put off saying anything else.

Are you under conviction in that area? One fellow said, “I started to procrastinate, then decided to put it off.”

Procrastination is a form of disobedience. When God tells us to do something and we don’t do it, we can label our actions with all kinds of fancy words, but the bottom line is, it’s sin.

Each day gives you 1,440 minutes. Days are passing and time cannot be stopped. You can’t call a “time out” in life. And time can’t be stored like money in the bank. A #1 hit song in the 70’s began, “If I could save time in a bottle….” You can’t. Really, the only thing you can do with time is use it or lose it.

ACTION POINT:

The oldest of all the psalms, written by Moses, says, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). Someone once wrote, “Lost: One golden hour, studded with sixty diamond minutes. No reward offered, for it is lost forever." Ephesians 5:16cautions us, “Redeeming the time, because the days are [filled with] evil.” These are evil times. Make every minute count.
