Live To Some Purpose

We have only once to live, therefore, let us live to some purpose. The day that dawned this morning will never dawn again. The opportunities which it brought with it will never come again; and if we fail to fill it with the service it requires of us, there will be no possibility of returning into it to repair the mischief. The wheels of Time's chariot have rachets on them, and they move only forward.

By William M. Taylor

Acts 11:23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Eccl. 3:17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

Amen...yesterday is gone forever. What we did not do or what we did in error can never be redone. It is so important to live each day to it's fullest potential and do as God would have us do. A missed opportunity is just that...a missed opportunity. Good post Bro. Jim.
