DAILY is but a vapor

In today's Scripture reading, the  Psalmist writes about his own human frailty...

(Psalm 102:11-12) "My days are like the evening shadow; I wither away like grass. But You, Lord, sit enthroned forever; Your renown endures through all generations."

The psalmist understands that his life is nothing more than a flickering shadow but while his time on earth is just a vapor, Gods presence will endure forever. 

I don't know if you ever think about your life and how quickly it is passing, but James puts it quite honestly, "You do not know what tomorrow brings". He then goes on and says, "For what is life? It is even a vapor that lasts for a short time and then vanishes away." (See James 4:14) 

God intends for us to live every single moment significantly, He wants our time here on earth to count for something. We must grab hold of something that will withstand anything and everything. 

What will remain after our vapor is gone?

Anything materialistic will be sold, anything physical will decay but those things spiritually that we hold onto and invest in, will last for all eternity. 

Life is short; eternity is long. Invest well and make every moment count!
