Until I am measured, I am not known,
Yet how you miss me, When I have flown.
There may be no more precious a thing in today’s culture than time itself.
Consider this: What is your time worth? Many of us measure what our time
is worth in dollars and cents. That can be depressing. Minimum wage in
the US is $7.25. That means you would make a little over $15,000 a year.
Let’s say you live to be 90 and get 80 years of work done in your life @ that
rate. In your whole life you would only have 1.2 million dollars accumulated,
before taxes. Even if you double it, does 2.4 million sound like a life well
spent? What if we measured our life by lives touched? What would your
total be? Ephesians 5 calls on us to “redeem the time, because the days are
evil.” How are you spending your time?
