MCCARTY Chaplain of Hie Razoifeaeks EDITOR'S NOTE: The Rey.| Mr. McCarty. who writes this column weekly, will be on vacation during June. The column will he resumed the first Sunday in July. Someone has well remarked that busyness is the great .sin of our age! Even those who supposedly have everything don't have the time lo enjoy it. Comments of "I'm so busy," "I'm too far hehinrl," "When T find time," "This week is too rushed," etc., seem to be on (he increase as never before. The great prayer of our age could easily he, "If f only had more time!!" The greatest lesson God has ever taught me about t i m e came as a result of a phone conversation w i 11] another church member. In concluding the call the good lady commented, "Paslor, you're so busy. You need thirty hours a day!!" T user] my most humble voice denying this and mumblec something about all of us needing more time. After hanging up the receiver however, I leaned back in m!i chair, meditated on my s e l f a p p o i n t e d importance, t h e critical nature of my work anc decided that I did need thirty hours a day. I was joyfully meditating on all T was going to accomplish with this "extra" time when the Truth of. God. in ils usual fashion, blew my m i n d with a different thought! GOD'S VOICE .seemed t( speak to me saying. . ."Wha an oversight on My part. When ' I created the twenty-four hou ! clay, I didn't anticipate that H ' D. McCarty would come along , and need thirty!!" Zap! Pn\v" : Boom! Ugh! What a shot The the trulh began to dawn ; Returning from Isrcal a fc\ weeks before. I had experienced me of those "thirty hour clays." We flew and flew with the sun. and it never got dark It took me a week to recover my lost sleep from only one "thirty' lour day! I The profound truth for all of s (o realize is that God has given us all the time we need o do all we were created to do. Twenty-four hours is enongli "or any man, woman or child College students often complain o me about how little time they lave. THE TRUTH is t h a t thcj lave more free time in college .han they'll ever have in their ife! The person who says, "I 1 Behind" or "I don't have enough time," or "I'm fratil- . trying to catch up." is admitting he is occupied with areas God never intended him to hp. concerned wilh. Jesus Christ had plenty of time lo do all the Father sent Him to do. He was never ir hurry. He was always schedule." He never allowed second-rate activity lo pul! Him away from first-rate priorities. Thomas Fuller said, "Time misspent is not lived but lost!" A . person doesn't "find time' for anyting; he must dedicate it. Time cannot be expanded, accumulated, mortgaged, hast ened or retarded. It is the one thing completely beyond man's control. The only way man can cscaper enslavement to time is to make time his servant. The God who made time is the only adequate source to this discovery. When Jesus Christ said, "My time is at hand." He in- dicaled He held the key to Ihe mystery and power of time. I hope you'll "take time" to check Him out! SORRY, NO MAIL OR PHONE ORDERS.
