It's already the middle of November!
Can you believe it!?! It's already the middle of November. We are only 11 days away from Thanksgiving and a little over 1 month away from Christmas! Where did it all go? It seems just yesterday, we were ringing in the New Year! Time has a way of getting away from us! That is why it is so important to number our days.
Psa 90:12 So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
And to Redeem the time!
Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Col 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
It's not that we can buy back time, but we can make the most out of the time we have. Our lives are as vapors, they appear for a short time and then vanish away just as James told us in James 4.
So, how do we redeem the time and number our days? Why not start this Holiday Season! Apply your heart to wisdom and walk in wisdom toward those without. Live for Jesus and display his likeness at your Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers. Treat others with love and respect. Deal with those past hurts and pains; and release them to Jesus! Make a commitment to love the unloveable...YES, EVEN IN YOUR FAMILIES! Read the Bible, make a list of people you're thankful for and send them a card! Pray for opportunities to share your faith and boldness to do it!
Sure, these are simple things, but it is the little things left undone that spoil and rot. It is the little foxes which spoil the vines. So, let's determine to not let this season go by without not just remembering that Jesus is, but living for Jesus, who is the Reason for the Season! God bless and have a great day!
