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 make a profit” — yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. 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 will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
100% of all Americans will die at some point in their lives. Yes, despite popular belief, despite social status, technology, medicine, wealth or power, people will die at some point in their lives. With time so precious and life so fragile, it’s my hope that we will live a life after the Lord’s will.
So next time, when someone or something disrupts the flow of your desires, let us consider the Lord’s desire over our own. When someone cuts you off on the highway, when someone offends you, when someone makes you upset, or when you sin against another, step back and consider the will of the Lord.
May you ever boast in the cross of our Lord Christ Jesus. To God be the glory!
