The possibility of spending time is pushed to the back of the criminal mind. That is until conviction, then the reality of spending time becomes depressing. Adjustments are made, time needs to be spent. And life goes on until death or the end of the sentence. Bet you’re glad you’re not locked up. The options of how your time was spent would be limited. But hey, you’re free! So push that thought of prison out of your mind.
Now you’re free to spend your time on lots of options. They are limited only by your health, wealth and status in life. You’re probably not going to enter the Queen of England’s private quarters, but you’re free to do lots of stuff. Hopefully without supervision. Lol Time spent providing necessities consumes a huge portion for most folks. What is left is precious. It’s more valuable than silver and gold. Twenty four hours, you can’t buy more.
Spending Precious Time.
There is lots to do. Amazing things draw our attention, we have to pick …. there is so little time. We can’t do them all. How do you choose? What priorities are in place? I hope you’re not just throwing your time around like it didn’t matter. It does. It matters to those whom you could spend it on. Those who would love your attention. Truly the best way of spending time is when the time is spent in love.
You can’t buy time or love. They both are precious and freely given. Although one is limited by a day in our future the other is meant to be eternal. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
