It is short.
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow.
You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
I just returned from the first of three funerals this week.
Well-lived before the Lord.
We, as Believers, must seize every moment.
Waste not a breath.
The Lord has granted us a specific length of days.
He knows exactly how many.
We do not.
That should motivate us to make every moment count…for the Kingdom.
Length of days can be added (which does not negate the foreknowledge/plan of God)…
My son, do not forget my teaching,
But let your heart keep my commandments;
For length of days and years of life
And peace they will add to you.
Let your heart keep His commandments.
- Length of days
- Years of life
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise),
SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.
Live the days the Lord has granted in His power.
