Shopping spree

Think a minute…On a TV game show, I saw a woman who won a shopping spree in a supermarket. She had 10 minutes to fill her cart with anything she wanted in the store. 

In those few minutes, she had to be smart and find the most valuable things she could to fill her cart with.

Do you realize that your life is like a shopping spree? In this short life, we have only a limited amount of time to get the most valuable things we can. 

To get the most for our time. One successful man said it this way: “The time of your life is the one dollar you’re given. 

It’s the only dollar you have, so be very careful how you choose to spend it. 

Don’t ever let other people spend it for you. Counting time is not nearly as important as making time count.”

If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. Time never stops for any of us, no matter who we are. 

“You may be able to take the day off, but you can’t put it back.” Since we can’t keep it or save it, we have to spend it. 

A wise man said:  “The only smart use of your time and life is to spend it on something that will last longer than your life and keep benefiting you even after you die.”

This short, simple poem tells us the secret to spending our life for that one thing that will secure and always take care of us. 

It says: “Only one life, will soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.” 

You see, Jesus Christ is the only One Who lasts, since He is the Creator of life itself. 

So if you have Him, you never run out of life. That’s what He came to show us by giving His own perfect life for our sins and then bringing Himself back to life. 

So what will you do with the time you have left? Why not start spending your life wisely: by living your Maker’s way for the only things that will keep taking care of you for the rest of your life, and even after you die.
