Time is perhaps the most valuable thing that we possess. Indeed, it is one of the most transient and irrevocable things that we have in this world. We may lose time or waste time, but we can never get it back. Once gone, it cannot be regained. Time is lost when we fail to live life to the full or when we fail to be fully human. However, life is not merely the passing of time. Rather, it is the collection of experiences that give meaning to life. So, life is to be experienced by learning, loving, creating, enjoying, giving, sharing, sacrificing, and suffering.
It is to be reflected upon in moments of silence and solitude, and for that, we must use the time we have wisely as unto the Lord. Conversely, as Scott Peck as prudently stated, “Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it”.
