“Then let us every day give heed…”

TIME AND ETERNITY
Oh time, how few thy value weigh,
How few will estimate a day!
Days, months and years are rolling on,
The soul neglected and undone!

In painful cares, or empty joys,
Our life its precious hours destroys:
While death stands watching at our side,
Eager to stop the living tide.

Was it for this, ye mortal race,
Your Maker gave you here a place?
Was it for this his thought design’d
The frame of your immortal mind?

For nobler cares, for joys sublime,
He fashion’d all the sons of time;
Pilgrims on earth, but soon to be
The heirs of immortality.

This season of your being, know,
Is giv’n to you– your seeds to sow;
Wisdom and folly’s differing grain
In future world is bliss or pain.

Then let me every day review,
Idle or busy, search it through;
Then let us every day give heed,
To God, ourselves and time to yield.

~By Dr. Thomas Scott~

**Psalm 90:12 **
So teach us to number our days, that we
may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

~Shared with the love for God’s TRUTH. ❤️

Today could be our last day. How much time do we waste on things of this world not giving heed to our  God? Our eternity?
