HOURS THAT COUNT 589
An unknown writer has written...
"It's not the hours you put in,
but what you put in the hours
Did you know that a year with 365 days
is composed of 8,760 hours. Assuming
we average 8 hours of sleep a day,
we have 5,840 waking hours in which to think
and feel and act.
In the year ahead, how many of these nearly six
thousand hours shall we glorify our Heavenly Fater and
humbly serve our fellow man.
To think in such large terms is somewhat
mind-boggling. Perhaps this is one
of the reasons why God segmented
our life's hours into twenty-four hour periods...
that we might better live our life for him... one day...
one hour... at a time.
