We have been given a fixed amount of time here on this earth. The Lord has given each one of us time to seek the truth. We have been given time to learn and to teach. We have been given time to give and to take. --We have been given time to sew into the lives of others, and we have been given time to see those fruits come forth and produce, whether they are fruits that yield righteousness and give honor and glory to God, or if they be fruits that bring shame to ourselves and to God.
