Ever since the passing of a dear friend a few weeks ago, I have become very conscious about time. How could I allow time be wasted on unimportant things (e.g. watching low-quality TV shows) when our time on earth is so short?
When lines like “seize the day” or “live every moment to the fullest” mean nothing more than cliché to us, that’s when we have to be careful. Things always take an unexpected turn when we are the least prepared. How can we be so sure that “we still have time” or “our loved ones still have time”?
During tonight’s dinner, we talked about the importance of having a will prepared well in advance. It was something I never thought about before.
We just don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow.
Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart. (Psalm 90:12)
