The Imagination of a Child

Kids can play in their imagination to the point that they can begin to believe they are the character. They are the cowboy, the Indian, the pirate, the princess, etc. They create a world of fantasy, then live and function there for a moment. The imagination of a child is a magical “I can be anyone and do anything” world.

It would be grand if we, as Christians, could do the same. We could have great programs and do wonderful things for God. We could show everyone how loving and considerate we are. We could save the world for God. We could…That’s a good place to stop.

In a fantasy world, it works…in reality, it falls short. The reality is that we as Christians can do nothing of ourselves…on our best day… with our best intentions…with our best efforts…we can do nothing for God. What we as Christians can do is listen to what God says to us in His word.

I am the vine, ye are the branches:

He that abideth in me, and I in him,

the same bringeth forth much fruit:

for without me ye can do nothing .

(John 15:5)

A Measure of Time

 

To each of us is given, a measure of time. No two have the same amount; some have more; some have less. Our time is uniquely ours. No one else can borrow from it, nor can you give any of it away. Time cannot be saved nor can we get more. The time each has been given is exact, there is no more and no less.

What we do with our time is entirely up to us. We can use it to full advantage or we can waste it. We are accountable for our use of the time given to us and liable to give an account of that use to the One who gave time to us. There is a purpose and a time for everything under the sun.

There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NLT)
