Time is Precious

by Jason Kirk Bartley

Time is so precious,
as it ticks away,
another hour,
another day.
How will you spend your time
on this earth?
Will you try and focus on making plenty of money and have you found your worth?
Do you have the fastest car?
Or have you become one of the rich and famous,
so everyone will know who you are?
Will you be a social person making many friends near and far?
Do you use your time wisely wherever you are?
Will you party and have a good ‘ole time?
Or go on vacations with mountains you’ll climb?
Maybe you’ll catch up with friends you’ve known in the past.
No matter how you spend it, this time on earth is not going to last.
When we think we have plenty of time,
our resources we waste,
time slips by as we make haste.
How will you spend eternity that’s the real question posed?
Will you spend it in Heaven or hell when your case is closed?
One of these days your soul will depart.
How is your soul and how is your heart?
Have you done everything in your power to persuade others to accept Jesus in this final hour?
For one day Jesus you’ll face.
He’ll decide your final resting place.
Either He knows you or He don’t.
Then nothing else will matter.
It truly won’t.
