My blog is where I post things I have learned through my own personal Bible study. Join me in digging deep into the Word to find the gold hidden inside. And feel free to email me if you think there's a theological error in any of my posts or if there's a topic you want me to cover in my next post.
If There Was No Tomorrow

whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. - James 4:14

Life is very uncertain. One day a loved one may be with you, and the next day they've been in a car accident and have not survived. And then that last argument you had with that person comes to mind, and we realize that we never made things right with that person, and now they're gone. How often we start cherishing a person once he or she is gone. Only then do we really realize how much we love and miss that person.

Even if you, like me, are not currently facing this or anther such tragedy, James 4:14 presents a thought provoking question for us to answer: If life is a vapor, what am I doing to value every moment with that person, as if there will be no tomorrow with them? If he or she died tomorrow, would we have regrets? Or would we have peace, knowing that we made the most of every moment with that person?

What are we building? Are Are we building our relationship with that person, of are we building up walls of bitterness? Life is precious, and it is too short to be wasted.

If you or someone you know is taking someone for granted, pray for that person. I can only imagine how terrible it must be to have regrets after a loved one has passed away.
