Rudyard Kipling once wrote a poem called "God's Minute." It reminds us of the sacredness of time. 

I have only just a minute, 
Only sixty seconds in it.
Didn't seek it, didn't choose it, 
But it's up to me to use it.
I must suffer if I lose it, 
Give account if I abuse it. 
Just a tiny little minute, 
But eternity is in it.

During one 24-hour day, you and I are given 1,440 minutes―important minutes that we can only use once. Each one of them is a priceless gift.

Moses prayed, "Lord, teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12). What are you doing with the time God gives you?


LaKeidra Young says:
I love the poem, but Dr. Benjamin E. Mays is the original author of it. Also, there are some lines missing. Rudyard Kipling wrote, 'If'. I enjoy both poems.
