“For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”
Far too often, we look at life from only a momentary and transitory perspective. We look at life now and fail to see life with the long view. We look only at the present and neglect to see the future.
In the Scriptures, we discover that God always takes the long view. For instance, the first prophecy of the coming Messiah was recorded all the way back in the Book of Genesis. The promise that the Messiah would be born of a virgin was given through the pen of Isaiah, hundreds of years before its fulfillment. These are just two of the many examples of God taking the long view.
If we follow the wisdom of The Architect of the Universe, we will do our best to always see our life with the long view. Life is short but the decisions we make each day will have long-lasting consequences, sometimes eternal consequences.
James asked, “What is your life?” Well, it certainly is brief but when you live with the “long view” in mind, the result of your short life will be eternal glory.
