LIFE IS SHORT

While visiting a space exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., Great Britain’s Princess Anne was introduced to Neil Armstrong. During her tour she noticed a display of astronauts’s spacesuits. Turning to Armstrong, the Princess asked, “Is there any danger of a rip?”The one who had taken great risks in being the first to walk on the moon replied, “Yes, the difference between life and death up there is only about one-hundredth of an inch of rubber!”

The same is true down here on earth – a very fine line separates life from death – time from eternity. The Hebrew writer said, “And inasmuch as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this cometh judgment”(Heb. 9:27). Solomon said, “All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again”(Eccl. 3:20).

All of us will die unless the Lord comes first. If we are all truly honest with ourselves we know that we have no guarantees of being alive tomorrow. People are unexpectedly killed or die every day. Almost everyday we hear of some young person killed in an automobile accident. Since we have no promise of tomorrow, in the words of Peter, we should ask, “what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy living and godliness”(2 Pet. 3:11). Remember, “For God will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil”(Eccl. 12:14).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
