Thankful for Time

November 14 2021

Time is our most valuable possession. You can get more money but you cannot get
more time.

said, ‘I’d give my entire fortune for one happy marriage.’
Marriage. Family. Friends. And happiness is based on time!
Redeeming the Time….Ephesians 5:14-15
Time makes things temporary. Positive and negative
* The most common thing that God has given to the human race is time
* COMMON— we all have time the same —Ethnics, color, height, weight, education
9 billion people in the world have the same amount of it in a given day.
