Genesis 1:14-19

1440. That's it. No more, no less. And everyone has the same - complete fairness in a world that demands to be treated fairly, without prejudice or favoritism. 1440? What is it? 1440 is the number of minutes in a day. In America, it is 1440 minutes. In Europe, it is 1440. In Africa, Asia, Australia, South America. Each of us is given 1440 minutes per day to make a difference.

Let's do a little math.

1440 total minutes in a day.
420 spent sleeping (7 hours)
1020 left over.
60 minutes gettin' ready.

480 minutes = work day of 8 hours
420 minutes of free time / day

Pretty simplistic, I know. But there is truth in this.

a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
...11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end

God is outside of time. Yet he has created time for us as a measure. The creation shows the development of time from the foundation - Sun, Moon, stars, all created to measure time. Genesis 1:14 - 14 And God said, "Let there be lights i ...
