James 4:13-14 “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit, 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.”
Upon reading these verse, I immediately I thought of “It’s a Wonderful Life” (if you haven’t watched this movie you should).
Time is short. As humans we appear “for a little time and then vanishes away.” In many ways we barely make a dent on planet earth, and yet in other ways we so grossly underestimate the effect we do have. As with George Bailey, in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” seeing our influence on others can be astonishing. Influence, which let us be aware, can be either positive or negative.
We are a vapor with very little time, so let’s not waste the precious time we do have. In this coming year, let us endeavor to do what is good and pleasing to God, and in so doing influence others to do the same, for in this we may in fact share with about the one person who makes us more than a vapor. Without Him we are nothing, passing away like a shadow, but in Him we find light, meaning, and eternal life.
