the brevity of life
The Brevity of Life!

Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and get gain"; whereas you do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and we shall do this or that." (James 4:13-15 RSV)

"LORD, let me know my end, and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is! (Psalms 39:4 RSV)

our time is our season of opportunities

And let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:9-10 RSV)

Our “Time” Is Our Season of Opportunities!
just for today

Lord, for tomorrow and its needs, I do not pray;

Keep me, my God, from stain of sin,

Just for today!

Now, set a seal upon my lips, For this I pray;

Keep me from wrong, or idle words,

Just for today!

Let me be slow to do my will, Prompt to obey;

And keep me, guide me, use me, Lord,

Just for today!

Just For Today!
