Exodus 31:1-18; Psalms 79:1-80:19; Acts 18:24-19:20

Brethren, the time is short. 1 Corinthians 7:29

The great Napoleon knew the value of time. He often said, “In every battle there is a crisis of perhaps ten to fifteen minutes on which the outcome depends. The proper use of that short period means victory. Improper use of those few minutes and one is destined for defeat”. Realizing, with Paul, that the time is short, let us, in fellowship with our Heavenly Commander, use every minute for His glory and service. “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” (Acts 9:6). —Arnot P. McIntee

Go, labour on while it is day,
The world’s dark night is hastening on,
Speed, speed your work, cast sloth away,
It is not thus that souls are won. —Horatius Bonar
