Life is Fragile; Time is Short

Daily we are reminded that life is fragile as people, young and old, die from crime, accidents and diseases. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. No one knows when “The Great Resurrection” will come but even if it’s a long time in coming, time is short. Do we, do you, really have time to waste on that, which is not God’s Truth? On sayings or teachings that you’ve imbedded in your mind and spirit simply because it’s “what I’ve always been taught” or because it comes from “someone I respect”?

Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding. Proverbs 23:23

Why spend money on what is not bread and your labor on what does not satisfy? Isaiah 55:2

Joan, it is easy to get sidetracked from what is most important in life. The tyranny of the urgent has a constant bid for attention and time never stands still for the things left behind. I pray that the Lord will continue to tug us toward the things He desires!
