Our Life, a Vapor
James 4:13-16 says it best about our lives and our plans. We don't know what tomorrow brings, we don't know what 1 hour from now will bring...
An EXTREMELY close friend of ours is currently in ICU because he had a massive Hemorrhagic stroke on Friday Morning. David is in his 40's and has 2 beautiful daughters who are 14 and 12... He eats right and take really good care of himself oh and also, he is a black belt in some crazy martial art I know nothing about. You've got to be kidding me, right? How could this happen to such an amazing person, and family?
Shocked, is the best emotion I can come up with to describe the feelings I have about how life passes so quickly, how our bodies fail us and there isn't much we can do.
It doesn't matter who you are, what you do, how much you make, if you love God or not; your life will pass, your body will fail, YOU WILL DIE.
What implications are there to this lesson?
1. I need to live my life to make it count! (and so do you) What does that look like?
2. I need to love like I will never love again! (sounds like a song, I'm sure there's one out there)
3. I need to spend my time wisely.
4. I need to treat my body well and do what I can to make it last.
How will you do these things? Am I missing any implications?
