“The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one’s health is more,
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.
The present only is our own,
So live, love, toil with a will,
Place no faith in “Tomorrow,”
For the Clock may then be still.”
When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted. (John 6:12, NIV)
I fear for you, that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you. (Galatians 4:11, NIV)
Prayer- Dear God, Help us to spend our time on that which furthers your kingdom. Amen.
