I’ve been thinking about time again! Of course, whether we think about it or not, our whole lives revolve around time. Our mother’s pregnancy is timed (months), and then after we are born the process begins of celebrating our birthday every 365 days. Nearly everything that we do is tied to our wristwatch, phone, clock or however we track time.
Within the last week, there have been two statements about time that really caught my attention. The first was at a funeral where the minister said, “The shortest part of our existence (time) is the one here on earth”! I don’t know what this means to you, but it certainly has spiritual implications to me. If we are made in God’s image, then we have a soul and it is the eternal part of us that will live on....hopefully in heaven with Him who created us. The second statement came from the television program, “Through The Wormhole” that is emceed by Morgan Freeman. I certainly do not agree with his spiritual ideas (he says that we are god), but he presents many interesting and fascinating ideas about our universe. This particular program was about time, and a scientist made the statement that “Time is the thing that keeps everything from happening all at once”! Now that’s pretty profound, and if you think about it, there are also spiritual connotations expressed in this statement. The Bible tells us that God is the Alpha and the Omega (the beginning and the end), and that He is omnipresent...not restricted by time.....so he experiences EVERYTHING NOW! So He created time for us, because we are not (cannot be) like Him----thank Goodness!
If you don’t know by now, my book THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON has several storylines, but the most exciting one involves time travel!! Check it out.
