Time is also precious, and we usually make plans for going places, sleeping, eating or working. We can save up the precious items and store them, but time cannot be put in a safety deposit box. Each minute that passes is lost forever to us. If we use time wisely, we are enriched, if we do not use it, we've lost something valuable.

The Bible has much to say about the wise use of time. One scripture advises us to do what we can when we can and not delay, because we are never sure what will come next (Ecclesiastes 11:6 Ecclesiastes 11:6In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening withhold not your hand: for you know not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
American King James Version×
). There is a time for everything—sleeping, taking one's leisure, working and playing. Knowing that time is precious will help us make the most of the years we have on earth. Some of that time needs to be spent thinking about the time after these years of life—that is time without end.
