It doesn’t care if you are rich or poor. It doesn’t care about your sexual preferences or your race. It doesn’t care where you were born, how much money you make or what kind of car you drive. Time is the most potent force in the world. Why? Because its universal it applies to everyone and when your time is up, that’s it there are no sequels. It’s one of the only things in the world that makes us all equal in some way. So how you spend your time is critical to your spiritual, financial and overall health. If you are spending your time on things you really enjoy, you are one of the richest people in the world.
Time, Friend or Foe? – Poem by Ric Velle
Times gives life meaning and sustenance, so we’re all
somewhat on common ground, so life doesn’t confound.
Time doesn’t stay the same, nor does the world.
Time goes slow and sometimes fast, and with hope, we shall last.
Time can be lost, and it can cost.
Time can be harnessed, and it can slip through the hand like granules of sand.
Time is a friend or foe, this I know.
Time is a second, a minute, or an hour, it may devour.
Time controls and consoles.
Time, at times, is the aggressor and the lesser, a comforter.
Time heals and steals. Time brings hope and sometimes despair.
Time can repair, and it can be unfair.
Time is eternity, together, with Christ,
the King of Kings, we shall be.
The poem above does have a Christian reference at the end but it shouldn’t register as a religious piece. It should serve more as a reminder of the value of time. “Time is friend or foe, this I know” the poet proclaims. What will it be for you? How much time will you spend today doing something you don’t want to do? Don’t make your time your foe, make an effort to determine what you enjoy most in life. It can be anything, and be honest. Like fixing cars? Cool. Like gardening? Maybe you are a gamer… Whatever it is make time your friend and spend time doing the things you enjoy doing.
