The Chaplain's Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

My wife enjoys watching game-shows and that got me to thinking. Let's imagine that you had won a fabulous prize on a game show: Every day for the rest of your life a magical bank would deposit $86,400. in your personal account. However, there are strict rules with this prize.
#1) each morning the bank will deposit another $86,400. into your account.
#2) everything that you didn't spend during the day is taken away.
#3) you cannot transfer money into any other account - you can only spend it.
#4) the bank can end the game at any moment without notice, and there is no appeal.

What would you do?

You would probably try to buy everything you wanted, right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people in your life. You might even spend money on people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself and the people in your life. You'd try to spend every single cent, and use it all up every day; right?

Well actually this game is a reality, but not with money! Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just don't seem to see it. The MAGICAL BANK is TIME!

Each morning when we get up we are given 86,400 seconds as a gift for that day, and when the day is done, any remaining time is gone. Each morning the account is refilled. But the magical bank can dissolve our account at any time....WITHOUT WARNING. SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds each day? Think about it!

And think about this: God is the One who gives us our time and He can end it.

Colossians 4:5 says, "Always make good use of your time." Are you using your time in ways that honor Him?
