Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone!
Life is valuable and ever so precious. It is a gift from God the creator of human beings, the earth, sun, moon, and stars in the galaxies.
When we woke up this morning, it becomes a day of purpose and meaning of what will we do this day and how will we conduct ourselves.
Will we love others or be hateful, jealous, or angry? Will we be honest in all our business dealings and relationships in our work, family, or friendships, or become so arrogant because of the things that we possess, the knowledge that we possess, or the money in our stocks or bank accounts?
Do you have plans for today or several months from now?
How easy it is to get caught up with the everyday routines of life. We’re not guaranteed the next hour! The world witnessed a tragedy two years ago how nine people died in a helicopter crash in Los Angeles. Although one was a sports icon Kobe Bryant a celebrity, every life was valuable in the eyes of God. Life was snatched away in the midst of the fog, in this case literally. May the Lord strengthen and help each grieving family, relatives, friends for this sad tragedy.
“Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town or city and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”
James 4:13-15 NLT
Ask yourself what the Lord wants in your life, rather than what you and I want in this life. You may be retired or close to it, but the Lord may have different plans for you to make an influence in our society and culture.
I know this is not a popular decision in a self centered egotistical culture, but ask yourself, what does God want for you today? Do you desire to please the Lord and walk in His way or are you going to be caught up in making a living and not living a full life. There are times when the fog distorts our vision to see what’s ahead.
If God asked you to change your career or sell your business, and give up your dream to follow Him will you do it? Taking up the cross of Christ is no easy decision, but it’s rewards and benefits are out of this world. Literally!
It doesn’t get any more radical and cut across our culture when Jesus said;
“If anyone comes after me, let him/her deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow me.”
