We have a limited number of days on this earth. If you're like me, most of them are wasted doing foolish things. We are never promised tomorrow and are arrogant to think we have any power to control our existence. As a child our time seems to go by so slowly; like waiting for Christmas. As a young adult, you feel invincible and spend your time indulging in selfish pleasure. When you get to the point in your life that you can finally make a little sense of it all, the clock seems to be working against you. Even then, none of these days were ever promised and we are fortunate to still have breath. We seem to be close to the end of time and in my own arrogance proclaimed that I'm not going to die; the Father was quick to point out that no matter what I think, He's in control and I have no say. The best use of your time is worshipping God, everything else will fall into place if you put Him first.
yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that." James 4:14-15
