Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 87

Short Lives

James 4:14

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

At certain times of the year, in the early morning, there is a dew that appears on the grass. Then the sun arises and the dew evaporates very quickly. James says, “Our life is even a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away” (James 4:14).

Against the backdrop of eternity, our lives are really very short. We need  to make them count for more than just this life. In Psalm 90:12, we find this encouraging prayer, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.” Make today count, my friend, as though eternity depended on it. May you have  beautiful day, too.
