God's endless measure

Most of us tend to want to do something with time. We want to find time, make time, kill time, buy time, or perhaps just have some more time.

But interestingly enough, few of us would attribute time to God and His universe. It's hard to conceive of God running things with clocks and calendars. Time is a concept that just doesn't seem to fit in an infinite universe, where good is unlimited. The Psalmist expresses our intuition when he says of God, "A day in thy courts is better than a thousand." Ps. 84:10.

Actually, to serve God more single-mindedly—that is, to learn more of His all-pervading presence and reality and so be willing to live in accord with it—is to be much less the servant of time.
