Time Well Spent

"And as they heard these things, He added and spake a parable, because He was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come." Luke 19:11-13

Oh, dear reader, this is the true test by which to try all our daily occupations and employments of time. That thing which we would not do if we thought Jesus was coming to-night, that thing we ought not to do at all. That place to which we would not go if we thought Jesus was coming this day, that place we ought to avoid. That company in which we would not like Jesus to find us, in that company we ought never to sit down. Oh, that men would live as in the sight of Christ! Not as in the sight of man, or of the Church, or of ministers, - but as in the sight of Christ! This would be "occupying till He comes." - J.C. Ryle
