Today could be the day that you leave this earth. You might not finish this blog post. Francis Chan writes, “On the average day, we live caught up in ourselves. On the average day, we don’t consider God very much. On the average day, we forget that our life truly is a vapor.” (p.39, Crazy Love)

James writes, “Come no, 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.” (James 4:13-14)

Do we live our lives as if we are invincible? Do we say with each day, “I’m in control, I’ll do what I want today”  Frederick Buechner wrote, “Intellectually we all know what we will die, but we do not really know it in the sense that the knowledge becomes a part of us. We do not really know it in the sense of living as though it were true. On the contrary, we tend to live as though our lives would go on forever.”1

Live today to the fullest, for God’s glory not for your own.
