“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14
Most of us at some time or another have probably heard the saying, “life is short.” Compared to eternity that is a definite fact. No matter how many years you live, it will be no real comparison to eternity. Our lives here in the earth truly are a vapor that appears for a short time, then…they are gone. With that being said, we need to get busy serving God and advancing His kingdom. We need to focus so much more of our attention on the things that will make a mark on eternity; things that will last in the sight of God. Maybe on the inside of you and me today there are things that we want to accomplish for God, or, maybe even things that we know that He has told us to do. And we are plodding along as if we are going to be living on the earth for 500 years before we expire physically and go to the presence of the Lord. My suggestion: stop putting off for the future what you know you can do today. Get started! If there are things you are uncertain of, do the part that you know can be done and get serious about your prayer and Bible searching time in order to become secure in the rest. It’s time to get busy…your life is but a vapor.
