Mussar: iThink - It's Now or Never

Rav Hutt

At the sight of a man standing on a bridge gleefully dropping dollar bills into a river, you would rightfully be perplexed.  If he attempted to explain, "I received $1,440 today, and I'm getting more tomorrow.  I want to watch them swim," you would certainly conclude that he was delusional.  Money is a resource that is laden with potential buying and investment power.  However, there is a resource that is far scarcer, far more precious, and far more valuable than money.  Time.  One minute of life bursts with potential accomplishment and is elusive like non-other.  Everyday man is gifted 1,440 minutes to invest or to spend, yet time cannot be saved.  When 'now' is savored, the true chance of a lifetime has been capitalized upon.  If not now, then when?  Perhaps the most empowering reminder one could ever hear is, "You have two weeks left to live."  As that finish line in the race against time pounces forward, our inner conscience intensifies, "Why was I always trying to kill time?"
