If your bank credited your account with $480 every morning, and then every evening cancelled whatever part of the amount that you had failed to use, what would you do? Withdraw every dollar and every cent you could, right?
Well, time works a little like a bank. Every morning we are all credited with 480 minutes in an eight-hour work day and 1,440 minutes every 24 hours. Every night it writes off as lost whatever we have failed to invest in a good purpose. Time cannot carry a balance forward and it does not allow overdrafts. Each new day it opens a new account with you, and each night it burns the record for the day. If you fail to use your day’s deposit of time, the loss is all yours. There is no going back, no drawing against tomorrow.
This ministry-specific booklet therefore illustrates how to live in the present, on today’s deposit, so individuals invest in it to get the most out of their health, relationships, dreams and anything else that is worthwhile.
