Time was brought into existence by God, Who transcends time and exists in eternity. We make big deals out of birthdays, anniversaries and New Year's Day, because we are time oriented individuals. But the Bible does tell us to number our days and that our days are few.
So here we are in 2017, with hopes and aspirations that things will be better. We are sometimes deceived into believing that time heals all. But we need to be mindful that God has allotted each of us a time, we call it life. We should make the most of the time we have left on our allotment.
But more importantly, Jesus promised that He would return. We know not the "time" of His return, but we better make sure we are ready!
