Being on Time

According to the human sense of time, the sun, moon, and stars become visible to us during certain hours; the birds and flowers and fruit appear at certain seasons; the sowing of seeds and the reaping of grain are done regularly.

For guidance in our human affairs, time is measured; and that we may have orderly days, we do many things at certain hours. The instruments by which time is measured have changed progressively from the early sundials, water clocks, sand clocks, and other devices, to the reliable and beautiful watches and clocks of to-day. We are not, however, always grateful for our timepieces, as we often think the hands are moving too slowly or too swiftly to fit in with our affairs!
