It’s time to get up! Time to go to school! Turn off the TV; it’s time for bed. Time to leave for church. Our world is controlled by time. Most of us would like to have more time every day to do our work and our activities. But time is really a special gift from God. He expects us to use our time wisely.
Our Bible Reading today is about time. The writer of Ecclesiastes says that there is a time for everything to happen. These verses also remind us that God allows both good things and bad things to happen in our lives, We can use our time wisely by doing things that please God. We can help clean the church building or teach a Sunday school class. We can carry grocery bags for our elderly neighbors. We can take a meal to someone who is sick. There are many things we can do to use our time in a wise way.
Verse 1 says, “There is a right time for everything. And everything on earth will happen at the right time.” If we allow God to control our lives, He will make everything happen at the right time for us.
