I saw a Peanuts cartoon that shows Snoopy saying, “Good grief! Is it November already? My life is going too fast. I think someone pushed the “Fast Forward” button.”

 

2020 has passed very quickly. It seems like we have lost 8 months (from April to November) due to the pandemic. Life is slowly picking up again. Soon it will be Christmas and the New Year 2021.

 

The Bible says, “So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12 NKJV) To number our days is to recognize the brevity of life. We do not have all the time in the world to enjoy life. Our days on earth will come to an end. Then we have to give an account to God, the giver of life.

 

Ephesians 5:15-17 NLT exhort, “So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.”

 

This is wise advice.  Consider carefully how you live. In the past few months, many people are working from home. It is tempting for us to waste our time by daydreaming or zoning out.  Church, don’t waste time because once it is gone, you cannot retrieve it.

 

Your life is precious. I like to encourage you to reflect upon the important purposes and goals of your life. I know that your plans are thwarted by the current situation. But it is not the end. You can still do the significant things in life.

 

Live wisely - it's only November!
