Poison: Pepsi Max
Favorite Things: First Blog on my new Mac…
Today we watched a movie starring Justin Timberlake (always a risk) and it was surprisingly amazing.
I would come close to saying one of the most inspiring movies I have seen recently.
Not really because of the words or the plot line, I was riveted by the context. The movie was set in a fictional place in the world, where no longer do we have money as our main currency, but time.
Every person has a time stamp on their wrist and they are paid in time for their work and they pay for their amenities, in fact everything with their time. Their life is basically bartered away for the bare necessities.
The rich get better looking and stay alive longer and the poor live with the intensity that their time is running out.
What a riveting subject.
Although we don’t live with a stamp on our wrist, ticking down our mortality, we are more aware than ever before that our days are numbered.
Im not sure if it is because I am getting older, or the world is getting sicker, but I have a conversation with person after person, watch broadcast after broadcast, read newspaper after newspaper about the effects of cancer, disease, car fatalities, shark attacks and the list goes on.
We live in a society that is afraid of the concept of time, because we are constantly reminded of those whose has run out.
Do you live indebted to your time or live freely because of it?
Time is a commodity in our world, although it is not swapped for our bread and milk, we choose the way we spend it and respond to the days we have left.
A king in the Bible Solomon who had seen everything under the sun wrote these words.
A Time for Everything
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
If time was a commodity, how would you spend yours?
