I recently had a birthday. And for the first time, I felt like my age was older than ME. It's a funny feeling!
I am now 23. Some people think it's old, some people think it's young. But what I realized more than ever before is that this life is a vapor. James 4:14 says "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."
The bible also talks about how all flesh is as grass, the glory of man like the flower of grass. It withers, and the flower falls away. And we are reminded that the Word of God never perishes! It will endure FOREVER. That's some of the best news we'll hear all day! Our God is faithful.
Anyway, it is time to use today for storing up eternal reward. It is so easy to live life for ourselves, but this vapor of a life is all we have to invest for eternity. I've been given TODAY for a purpose.
