"What is A Moment Worth?"

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Is it? Or is it worth so much more?
      Pictures capture the most valuable thing that we can never get back: time. Moments. The moment in this picture will never happen again, no matter how hard I try to re-create it. Pictures are there to remind us of the things our minds may forget. However, you can look at any picture of yourself and remember what you were thinking and feeling in that moment. And that moment may bring you happiness, sorrow, regret.... the list goes on. 
      I want you to think about something as you read this. Think about your best moment thus far in your life. Have you got one? Now, imagine re-living that moment over and over again for the rest of your life. If that were possible, would you enjoy it? I don't think so. I say that because although it was your best moment thus far, nothing in your life would change from that moment forward. Life would be pretty boring. Right?
      Life is made of ups and downs and it's those moments that make us who we are today. Who we are and HOW we are. Now, I want you to think about how you spent your day yesterday, or even the day before. Was it a good one? Every day is never the same. Some are more stressful and frustrating than others. Some are stress-free. We need both. Even if yesterday was a not so good day for you, but you handled it properly, than chances are that you had a better day today. The moments of yesterday made you who you are today. And it's never too late to apologize or correct your mistakes. 
      Growing up, we had a saying in my house: "Don't go to bed mad." Even if I had just had a heated argument with my sister (s) for hours, we had to resolve it and apologize before going to bed, whether we felt like it or not. It wasn't until years later, I learned that my mother was not just quoting some saying, whether she realized it or not, it is found in the Bible. Ephesians 4:26 says, ...."Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry." Why?? Sometimes you don't feel like solving the issue that day. Sometimes you want to hold onto your anger and your right to be upset. But the Bible is wise.
      Whether you read scripture or not, many of you may actually be living this out unaware. Like I did as a child. This is wisdom because, going to bed angry will most likely cause you to wake up with the same issue the next day. Hence, re-living that same moment over again. That is unnecessary misery. I have been there many times. It did not add anything good to my life. 
      So, my question to you is, "Is it worth it?" Make your moments count. Resolve those issues with those relationships.
      Time cannot rewind. Which moments will you choose to hold onto? I hope you choose wisdom: "Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry."
God knew what He was talking about. He knew what He was doing.

Time is made up of moments.

Time is more valuable than money.

Your life is more valuable than both. Remember the good moments. Redeem the bad ones.
This is a lesson I'm still learning.
