Doing a study on time without any distinct purpose other than to study.
Time is the custodian of all earthly activities. Time does not exist in heaven since eternity is the atmosphere of God and there is neither beginning nor ending there is only “there is.” Time is the earthly account for there is a time when we all must give an account. We are preoccupied with time and we wear watches and technological devices to inform us of its moments. We desire to know what, where, why, who but when. We arrange our lives around this invisible citadel that reminds us when to start, stop, pause, speak, listen, invest, buy, sell, marry, have children, get an education, purchase a home, car, clothing, form friendships, exercise, eat, sleep, awake, and earthly terrestrial activity.
