Like a Vapor…

In fact, you have made my days just inches long, and my life span is as nothing to you. Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor. Selah Psalms 39:5 CSB

Life is a vapor and time is short. When a person is young, he or she has the mindset that there is plenty of time, but those who get older know better. Yet a life with a God-centered purpose is a life worth living.

And when we think of it, we have many choices throughout our lives to do one of two things: bring people closer to God or push them away. Our words, our conduct, our actions make a difference for eternity. Every step and every decision has a ripple effect.

Is this overwhelming? Maybe. But it takes a willingness to listen to God through His Word. As we grow in our relationship with Him, we prioritize Jesus, placing His will in the middle of our lives and impacting others for God’s glory. And it’s done one step at a time.

How often do I utter a careless, selfish word when I need to tame my tongue? How often do I go the wrong path that is not God’s way? Lord, lead me well to follow You and glorify You daily!
