I just wanna share my thoughts on this passage please take time to read:
1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
9What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
10I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
12I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
13And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
I defined TIME as God’s precious gift to us that is why we need to value it. TIME is also synonymous to LIMIT because it tells us that we live only once that is why we need to make the best out of our lives.
The heart of the passage tells us that there is a TIME FOR EVERYTHING. Things happen in its proper or perfect time. Perfect time means God’s time. And because time is God’s gift to us everything that is happening in our lives is a CHOICE. A choice if we will give importance or not to the time given by God. It also speaks that God is in control of everything and we need not to worry because He will not allow things to happen if He knows we cannot make it. Moreover, time gives us the concept of ETERNITY. God gave us time so that we can see his majestic works that if we have him in our lives there is eternity.
To make the most out of our lives (1) we must always remember who we are and (2) we should always remember why we are here. Our lives were made to serve the Lord and be His ambassadors, to glorify and enjoy Him FOREVER.
Share the good news. The time is NOW.
God bless everyone!
