The Artist: Sand

In this image, sand represents time, arguably, one of the greatest gifts ever given to us, perhaps only second to Grace, by which we are Saved! Time is no respecter of persons. Whether the richest or the poorest, when your time is up, it's up! Everyone has been given the same amount of time in each day. How that time is managed can be influenced by a number of factors. How do we spend our time? Do we bury it and keep it for ourselves, like one of the servants did with the talents given to him in the Parable of the Talents, found in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 25, verses 14-30? Or do we invest it in others who are in need of perhaps just a moment of our time? Together, let's offer someone a small piece of our time. It may only amount to a single grain of sand falling through our hourglass.
