Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. (James 4:14 NASB)
James writes a rather intriguing passage here that everyday becomes a little more real to me. Working in a funeral home I have learned rather quickly that death has no guidelines, sometimes it is a rather long process and others almost instant. Often times the pain and agony of dying is very real and evident while others seem to be at such peace while they leave here. And then of course there is the age factor, death doesn't care if you are 100+ years old or a new born baby or anyone in between; and we find here that James told us that as he wrote the words God spoke to him.
It boils down to this, you and I really are not promised tomorrow. In fact we're not promised our next breath, so why don't we make the best of every moment. Live like today is your last day on earth and serve God will all of your heart. He has plans for each of us and if we allow Him to guide our life daily, when we do meet Him face to face we will hear the best words ever, "Well done my good and faithful servant."
Be blessed today, and remember live this day as it was your last day to share of Gods goodness and His love for mankind!
