13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. If you live in Georgia you know what it's like to live through 4 seasons in one week. One day the high is seventy degrees with a low of forty, the next day it’s a high of fifty with a low of thirty three. Here in the good old state of Georgia it seems to fluctuate daily. You never know from one day to the next how to prepare for the weather. Life is a lot like Georgia weather. It’s different every day, there can be drastic changes in an instant, and it can often take you by surprise. So nature itself teaches us that we know not what tomorrow may hold for us. We far too often spend our today talking about the great things we will do tomorrow, instead of today. But the Bible is perfectly clear about this mindset. That life is merely a vapor and whatever we are going to do we need to do it now. “You always have tomorrow.” Is one of the biggest lies of the enemy, and unfortunately it’s also one of the most believed lies. We may claim life to be many things such as, changing, unfair, tough at times, and overwhelming. But there are two things for sure it’s not. It’s not a game and it’s not everlasting here on this earth.
When someone passes away regardless of their age, we always feel like “it was too soon.” The song writer said, “Live today like it’s the only day you have, before you come to realize another one has passed.” The question is, if you knew that tomorrow was your last day, what would you do differently for the Lord today? What changes would you make, what goal would you set? What you’re going to do, do it now. Life is uncertain, but one thing I know, we can always trust the Lord.
