Humility, a Great Virtue
In our Wednesday night teaching series, “Back to the Basics”, we have been taking on the issue of time. Moses prayed in Psalm 90:12, “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” The apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians said, “Redeem the time, for the days are evil.” Time these days, seemingly isn’t what it used to be. Though sixty seconds is still a minute, and the long hand on the clock still travels at the same rate of speed. Time feels as if it has been sped up. Daniel spoke of a time when “many would run to and fro and knowledge would increase.” In present day of busy schedules, heavy agendas, and working overtime to make ends meet, time has become an even more precious commodity. For us as believers, seeking to redeem the time, number our days, to gain a heart of the wisdom, the bottom line is; “IT TAKES TIME”. Time in the Lord’s presence in worship has a humbling affect and thus positions us to receive God’s favor. Jesus Christ is our Jubilee and so we have the Lord’s favor but remember “It takes time.”
