We are like a vapor

"Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit." Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow, You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that." James 4:13-15

  It is so easy to get caught up in life. To start planning it all out and thinking we have everything figured out. This verse is such a great reminder that everything we do should be done with God in mind. Realizing that we don't know what is going to happen in life. Life can feel stable but it is really uncertain.

 This is a reminder to seek God's will in everything that we do. I need that reminder! Do you?

Thank you! I enjoy reading your posts especially the scriptural ones. It is very true, we plan and we plan but so need to give to all back to Jesus. And better yet, have Him involved in the planning process in the first place! I needed this reminder.

I think this is a lesson that believers grow more and more into as they age.
