It’s embarrassing when a parent returns a sample or formula to the office unused because the product has expired. On occasion, sales representatives deliver expired items. More than likely, someone on staff was not paying attention at the time. The problem with expired medication, formula, vaccines or even food is that they are not as effective, the taste has gone from bad to worse and the active ingredient has deteriorated. What you have left is of no use. Therefore, the manufacturer directs buyers to use that you have before the expiration date.
4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
Every believer is given at least one spiritual gift to bless the body of Christ and give God glory. At every opportunity, our gift(s) are to be used for the edification, exhortation and education of fellow believers and as a witness to the world. We work while we still have breath in our body and the day is not yet gone. Although our expiration date is unknown to us, be aware that a set date for our demise has already been appointed. Uncap that gift and use it now. It’s downright embarrassing to return unused to your Manufacturer on you expiration date.
