Prepare yourself for the things at hand. Be ready for the coming of the kingdom. To be ready for winter one might store food, but we are told that heaven and earth will pass away. What use are the things we gather? Yet, our preparation does not involve material things. Instead we should find time to recognize Christ in the world.
Think of all the ways we talk about time. It can be spent, lost, taken, used, killed, wasted. Our time is precious and limited, why should every minute be anything less than extraordinary? This is the only life we have. Each breath is precious and each person spectacular. Each person is Christ, who will not pass away but rather continue living for all eternity.
I will end this examination of time with a prayer by Leo Rock S.J.:
How do I kill time? Let me count the ways.
By worrying about things over which I have no control.
Like the past.
Like the future.
By harboring resentment and anger over hurts real or imagined.
By concern over what's in it for me.
By failing to appreciate what is
These are some of the ways I kill time.
