86,400 is quite a large number, isn't it? Imagine someone giving you that much money.
What might you do with it? Many of us might pay off our bills. Take a vacation etc.
Certainly one would be blessed if he were able to have that many close friends. Yet we are not speaking of those kinds of things, when we refer to the number 86,400.
What then is it that equals 86,400? Would it be the number of bones in one's body? No, nothing like that, It is the number of seconds in a day.
Yes, each day affords us with 86,400 seconds of time to use as we see fit, time to serve God, time to eat, time to sleep, and everything else we do.
Someone once made the observation of how difficult it would be for someone to spend $86,400 each day, with the stipulation that he could not save it, nor "invest" it, etc. Because at the end of the day, he would lose any money he had not spent.
This is similar to the gift of 86,400 seconds we have each day, at the end of the day, they are gone forever! We have no roll-overs.
Friends 86,400 seconds is all we have been given for the day. How will we use this precious time? Will it be used in selfish pursuit's, or in Godly efforts? Let us resolve to stop wasting time and instead make the best use of it. Ephesians 5: 15-17
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
