In Part 3 today we look at the fact tat this life is SHORT! We only get one shot and so we need to make sure that we get it right!
I'm 32 now and I have 2 kids under 7. Life is hurtling past me at an incredible speed!
It almost seems like time is gaining velocity with each new year.
I can't afford to muck around... my life very soon will come to an end. I will either look back with joy... or with grief.
King David understood that time is short. look at these wonderful words of wisdom from the Psalms:
Psalm 39:4-7 (New International Version)
4 "Show me, O LORD, my life's end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting is my life.
5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Each man's life is but a breath.
6 Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro:
He bustles about, but only in vain;
he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it.
7 "But now, Lord, what do I look for?
My hope is in you.
Until I realise the paucity of our days... I will be inclined to nonchalantly live my days away.
I love Robert Moffat's quote, "We will have all of eternity to celebrate our victories, but only one short hour before sunset to win them."
Where are you wasting time and opportunities away? In what areas do you need to live more intentionally?
I look forward to seeing your comments.
