“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”
James 4:14 NLT
Today, enroute to Tokyo, we witnessed a very traumatic situation. A man on our bus, passed out and fell un-conscious. We stopped the bus and carried the man out onto the street and waited for the ambulance service to arrive. They tried to resuscitate him and even applied the defibrillator to no avail. Although he was not pronounced deceased it didn’t look very hopeful as he lay there lifeless.
It was such a sad thing to see and so many questions wondered through my mind. What is his story? Does he have family? Did he have a health condition already? Yet above all, what stood out most to me was, was he ready to meet his maker?
Life is so frail and so temporary. No one can know when our time is up? No one can predict what life has in store for us. It is for this reason that we should make the most of every moment we have on this earth. We should keep short accounts with both God and man. And most importantly share the good news of Jesus’ love with people you meet. Don’t hold on to the great news of salvation, because you never know. You might be the last person that someone meets.
Everyday is a gift from God. Count your blessings for the air you breath, the legs that enable you to walk and for the friends and family around you.
If you read this and have not met Jesus yet, then don’t delay. Reach out and invite Him into your life. I promise that you won’t be disappointed… His love is just an acceptance prayer away.
Incredible thought provoking. Every day we do seem to take God’s gift of life for granted. Amen
