“So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.” (Rom. 14:12)
Knowing that all of life is a stewardship, how would we live every moment if we remembered that we would have to account for that moment before our Creator one day?
For example, remembering that Jesus said we would give an account of every idle or unfruitful word that we spoke. Would we then let our speech be seasoned with grace? Would we be less prone to exaggerate or slightly not tell the whole truth?
If we remembered that every second is a trust from God, wouldn’t we be more careful to invest it in His Kingdom enterprise? Would we watch less TV and pray more? Would we talk less about our favorite football team and tell people about Jesus more?
God gives us daily so many opportunities to please Him. We have choices. We can choose to waste our lives, use our lives up for ourselves, or invest our lives in the Kingdom of God. Which will you do today?
