I mentioned in my message last Sunday that James wrote that our lives are like the morning dew or fog. The fog or dew is here for a little while and then as the sun comes up it is gone. So it is with our lives. David wrote in Psalms 103: 15-16, “Our days on earth are like grass, like wildflowers, we bloom and die.”
You may be surprised to know that Moses wrote Psalms 90, not David. He said in verse 10 that God gives us 70 years and to some He gives 80 years. Then he writes in verse 12, “Teach us to number our days that we may grow in wisdom.” He is not talking about counting our days, he is saying be careful to be wise in the way we live in the days God gives us. I think he also says God wants us to make our lives count so that at the end we hear, “Well done good and faithful servant.” We can be thankful that even when this life ends, it is not the end for all who believe and confess that Jesus is Lord.
Jesus told his friend Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never die.” And like he asked Martha, “Do you believe this?” We are given today with no promise for tomorrow.
Make the most of the time God gives us.
God bless, and “Keep Spurring each other on toward love and good deeds.”
