The Sunday Message

What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.James 4:14 (NIV)

In the grand scheme of things, the verse (above) from the Book of James is pretty cold-hearted. It is like a punch in the stomach.

It does not say if you are important or rich or poor or well-known. It just says “You” are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

That means all of us.

Another verse that hits believers hard is this one:

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.Proverbs 27:1 (NIV)

Life has a way of taking our plans and putting them in the blender and mixing them up.

As I have become older and started to understand that I am not invincible, I try to thank God for each day I’ve been given. Sometimes I do it before my feet hit the floor in the morning – because I “do not know what a day may bring.”

Have a great week!
