Time is the most valuable thing on earth, because lost time is lost forever. There are no rewinds in life, no re-plays, we cannot make up for the times we have lost.
The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom is one of the best books about why we should value the time that we have right now and why we should make the most out of it. I would love to share a lot about this book but this post might too long and will become boring. So I will just have make a short book review about it.
The Time Keeper started when a man tried to measure God’s greatest gift to mankind and that he was punished for doing so. He needs to do something for God in order to stop his punishment which is being locked in a cave and was forced to listen to a lot of voices who seek more days, more weeks, more years from God.
In order to be free, Father Time needs to educate two humans the true meaning of time. One, a girl who wants to die and two, an old business man who wants to be immortal. Father Time must impart to them that only God can give them more time and that God is the only who decides when their time is up.
