We are stewards of our time. God has given each one of us a little "chunk of eternity" called time. These golden moments of opportunity are doled out to us for our benefit and for God's glory.

"Only one life, 'twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last" is the sentiment of every man who desires to be a good steward of his time.

Pentecost, in Greek meaning 50th, was special to them because of the meaning of the number seven, which signifies the perfection, the fullness of God and divine completion. The number fifty is one more than seven times seven. The Jews strictly followed the order of God's creation cycle, and even their land took rest every seventh year.
