Sam Hagan shared with me “The Magic Bank Account”.
“Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 into your account but there were rules to follow:
- Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
- You may not simply transfer money into some other account; you may only spend it.
- Each morning the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.
- The bank can end the game without warning and close your account permanently.
What would you personally do? Would you buy anything and everything you wanted? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for; even for people you don’t know, (you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself).
Would you try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning?
Actually, this bank is real and a deposit is made into your account each morning. The deposit is “TIME”.
- Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.
- When we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not rolled over; what we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.
- Yesterday is forever gone.
- Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING.
So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds? Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to use wisely every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think. Invest wisely; love deeply; enjoy life. It is a gift from God!
Thank, You, Father, for the gift of LIFE!
