How often in the course of a day do you stop to check the time? It seems our whole lives are ruled by the hours of the day. Time is the great common denominator of humanity – a minute is always 60 seconds no matter who you are. Hi, I’m Tom Ellsworth from Sherwood Oaks Christian Church with a timely, minute message.

In the latter half of the nineteenth century, cross country travel by train was extremely complicated. The nation was divided in scores of time zones. As a matter of fact, there were more than “80” correct times across the country. In 1869 Charles Dowd proposed a plan that would divide the U.S. into only four time zones. And by the early part of the 20th century, the time zone plan had been adopted by the whole world.

What you do with your time is important. The famous Danish author of children’s stories, Hans Christian Andersen, reminds us, “Time is so fleeting that if we do not remember God in our youth, age may find us incapable of thinking about him.” He’s right! Regardless of your years, let the One who is timeless and eternal be the focus of your every moment.
