How The Days Are Passing
A Jewish man was asked how it was that his countrymen were so successful in acquiring wealth. “Ah,” said he, “we do not make more money than other people, but we keep more.” Beloved, let us be on guard this day against spiritual pickpockets and spiritual leakage. Let us lose not those things which we have wrought. Let us be sure we receive a full reward. As each day comes and goes, let us deposit in the savings bank of eternity its treasures of grace and victory, being conscious that something real and everlasting is being added daily to our eternal fortune.
It may be but a little, but if we can save all that God gives us and pass it on to His keeping, when the end of all things comes, we shall be amazed to see how much the accumulated treasures of a well-spent life have laid up on high. We shall see how much more God has added to them by His glorious investment of the life committed to His keeping.
How the days are passing! How precious these golden hours will seem sometime! God help us to make the most of them now.
[A. B. Simpson]
2 John 8 ... Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
Matthew 6:34 ... Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Jude 21 ... Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.❤
