Finite vs. Infinite

There is a song that has been playing in my head for a few days. The song is “Sunrise, Sunset”. It is from the movie “Fiddler on the Roof”. It is talking about how fast time moves and how each day is finite or set amount of time. When you are young is seems that time has almost stopped. As you get older it seems that time speeds up. It is funny how when I was young I wanted to be older. Then when I was older I wanted to be younger. But as I became older I could do more things faster than when I was young. And as I did more things faster, time moved faster for me. It seems strange that it should be reversed but it isn’t. We are eternal beings but here are this earth our life is finite. Infinite comes later when we cross over on to the other side of life. On the other side there is no time at all. Time was invented by God for the people who live on this earth. So we could see and perceive seasons. As a people we have taken it to the farthest point. There is an atomic clock in Washington, D.C. In Greenwich, England is the starting point of all time on earth. Time has been divided into zones, hours, minutes and seconds. You know what is the strangest thing about all of that is how much time is wasted on nothing. Although we aren’t finite, time is. There is so much time in each of our lives. Then there is no more. Once we use it, it is gone forever. How well have you used time in your life? Have you accomplished the goals you set for yourself or has life gotten in the way? We have a very serious question to answer here on earth. We have just a certain amount of time to answer this question. Once time has ended for us, we can’t answer that question anymore. It will be answered for us. And this could be devastating for us. The question is whether or not we, as an individual, will choose to walk with God. As one of His sons. Choose God and live. You only have so much time to make up your mind.
