    Only, only one. How earnest should that one life
    be, That narrow span Day after day spent in
    blessed toil.

68
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • We do not know the time we have. (1 Thess 51-7)

69
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • 1 Thessalonians 51-7 (NKJV) But concerning the
    times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need
    that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves
    know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes
    as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say,
    Peace and safety! then sudden destruction comes
    upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.
    And they shall not escape.

70
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that
    this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You
    are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are
    not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let
    us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and
    be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night,
    and those who get drunk are drunk at night.

71
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • We must live each day as our last.

72
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • It's up to me to use it. I must suffer if I lose
    it. Give account if I abuse it. Just a tiny
    little minute, But eternity is in it. Learn from
    yesterday Live for today Hope for
    tomorrow. Lost time is never found
    again. Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

73
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • Revelation 2012-14 (NKJV) 12And I saw the dead,
    small and great, standing before God, and books
    were opened. And another book was opened, which
    is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged
    according to their works, by the things which
    were written in the books. 13The sea gave up the
    dead who were in it, and Death and Hades
    delivered up the dead who were in them. And they
    were judged, each one according to his works.

74
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake
    of fire. This is the second death.

75
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • Opportunity I held a bit of heaven today, that
    priceless jewel called opportunity Yet, such
    like a fool I teased it so, till it slipped
    through my fingers and into the past. Carefully I
    tried to recover this stone only to find it
    secured by another.

76
Consider some mistakes of this series.
  • But by this I am made wise and am settled that it
    shall not happen again. I will keep vigil for
    another jewel, and soon it will come. But alas
    not as precious as the one I let slip away.
