“Like a vapor,” says James 4:14.
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our heart to wisdom,” prayed Moses1.
“Our lives are like sleep, like grass that grows up and withers,” he notes in the same prayer2.
And yet we are eternal beings.
Possessing eternal life now through knowing the one true God and Jesus Christ, whom He sent (John 17:3),
with the promise of an immortal body one day (1 Corinthians 15:-53-55),
when we will forever be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:17-18).
In the meantime, we are called to a life of love –
to love God with all that we are
and to love others as He loves us.
