Scripture Challenge Week 22 - Time


Ecclesiastes 3
A Time for Everything
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Everyone has heard part of these verses at some point in thier lives. The first sentence says it all There is a time for everything. But how much time in our day to we devote to God? Even I am guilty of spending whatever time is left over to Him instead of scheduleing time around Him. Our lives are busy. But we need to cherish and protect our time spent with Him in prayer and thoughts because if don't someone or something else will fill it up for us.
