I thanked her, of course, and stood in line waiting with those words going round and round in my head. Did she have more time than money, do I, does anyone?
James 4:13-15 says, "Go to now, ye that say, today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and contiue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that."
I used to always hear my grandmother say, "If the good Lord's willing..." before she announced any of her plans. I didn't really know what that meant while she was alive, but now I know that she was a wise woman.
None of us really know how much time we have. We may not have very much money, but we may very well have more money than time, we just don't know. Which is why we should all use our time wisely.
