"Just A Minute!"

Benjamin E. Mays: Morehouse College President from  1940 to 1967

One of the things that I really love about the church where I am a member is that fact that my preacher is an intellect. At tonight's service, he spoke to us about making a list of things that are really important to us and for us to make sure that we are good stewards over the things that we value.

Two things that he suggested that should be important to Christians are our Salvation and our Time, and he went on to recite "Just A Minute" by Benjamin E. Mays:

"Just A Minute" 
by Benjamin E. Mays, Former Morehouse President

I have only just a minute, only 60 seconds in it,
Forced upon me, can't refuse it.
Didn't seek it, didn't choose it,
But it's up to me to use it.
I must suffer if I lose it,
Give account if I abuse it,
Just a tiny little minute,
But eternity is in it,.
What are you going to do with your minute?

I came home and goggled this great poem, and I fell in love with it, and I had to share it with my readers!

I hope that you love it as much as I do.........
