86,400 seconds is equivalent to 24 hours. There’s a lot of things to do in a day but we only have so little time. We can’t loan time or borrow it from others. All we need to do is to use this most valuable resource in the most important matters within 24 hours. If someone asked you, how do you want to spend your day and why? What would you say?
Let me answer that question first by sharing the 3 things my wife and I do constantly every single God-given day.
1. Pray- my wife and I have an agreement that we need to pray together everyday. Whether we are okay or not, whether we feel like it or not. It’s one of our non negotiables even before we got married. We pray no matter what. God is the foundation and the third party in our covenant so we intentionally involve and acknowledge Jesus every day through prayer.
2. Talk- this is an on going, never ending dialogue with my wife. This has to be one of the major strengths of our marriage I must say. This is beyond active listening and exchanging of stories. It also includes setting aside our smartphones, gazing each other in the eyes, and enjoying the undivided attention from one another.
3. Laugh- We laugh each day, we have our own language and inside jokes that only we can decipher. It’s like we heard it for the first time, and still laugh even though we cracked that joke already gazillion times. Laughter is indeed the best medicine because it nurtures and sustains the joy so that it’s easier to sweat the small stuff. This is one of the reasons why lately there’s no room for petty fights!
Life is short to live an unintentional life and an average marriage and this verse is proof that we need wisdom to make the most out of the 24 hours entrusted to us every day.
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Question: If you only have 24 hours left, how will you spend it and why?
