Jast a single day?... One day ; | / : . "^ out of the 365-day year? With you, whafrSoes-'a day mean??? Actually, it means 1440 moments of opportunity. It means 24 hours of precious fleeting lifetime. It means that life at best is short...that it is only a little while we have to make the journey down through the valley of time. Just what are you doing with this day and every day? You sin when you uselessly spend the days God gave you. Each day on the calendar is like "a sheet of paper white whereon each one of us may write his word orbWTand then comes night... though thou have time but for a line, be that sublime; not failure but low aim is crime," Go to church this week and ask the Lord to help you keep your aim high. Ask Him to help you plan well every moment of every hour of every day. What does a day mean to you? Yon h The ttord in, He Church fa You IP ' — him • combbiotioo for good.
