Every Second Counts

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Last night I watched the BCS Bowl Game which featured Florida State University against Auburn. The game was won in the final seconds and amazing play by its quarterback, Winston, a freshman Heisman Trophy winner. In fact if you have watched recent Bowl games and Wild Card Playoff games, you would have noticed many of them was won in the final seconds of the 4th quarter. That illustrates the importance that every second counts.

How do you play the game of life? Do you waste opportunities? Squander your time? Miss calls? Fail to play up to your potential? Do you allow the opposing force to press your back up against the wall?

Too often many of us give up after a first, second or third quarter score that appears to be going against us. Sometime we fail to play every second because we look back at what happened to us versus what can we do to turn the situation around.

Take a lesson from these football games and make every second in your life count.

An anonymous poet once said,

"We only have a minute,
Only sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon us, can't refuse,
We will suffer, if we lose it,
Give account if we abuse it,
Just a tiny little minute,
But, eternity is in it!"

Make every second of your life count and begin doing that today!
