“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted”- Ecclesiastes 3:1,2.

Comment:

The Creator and Possessor of the heavens and earth is a God of order and decency. (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40)  He had planned His works long beforehand and so they do not happen by chance.  (Acts 15:18) The world itself is ordered for things to happen according to time.  The rainy and dry seasons, the sun, moon and stars are created by God for the benefit of man. (Daniel 2:21; Genesis 1:14)  Therefore, a man who goes to sow at the time of harvest has not made adequate use of the time and season.  Making good use of one's time demands faith, patience, and diligence in the service of JEHOVAH.   “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD” - Psalm 27:14.

In making appropriate use of time, one has to cultivate the right spiritual and moral values, both in precept and practice as Apostle Peter exhorts: “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.” - Romans 13:11-13.
