Every day a new account

 

Each day is a new account …

  • If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,000
  • That carried over no balance from day to day …
  • Allowed you to keep no cash in your account …
  • And every evening canceled whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day…
  • What would you do?
  • Draw out every cent every day, of course, and use it to your advantage!
  • Well, you have such a bank…and its name is “TIME.” Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
  • Every night, it rules off as lost whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose.
  • It carries over no balances.
  • It allows no overdrafts.
  • Each day, it opens a new account with you.
  • Each night, it burns the records of the day.
  • If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.
  • There is no going back.
  • There is no drawing against to “Tomorrow.”
  • It is up to each of us to invest this precious fund of hours, minutes, and seconds in order to achieve God’s purpose in our lives
