Brevity of Life

The morning is soft and warm; with birds singing and flitting through the trees. The air is fresh and light, and there’s only a few lazy clouds in the sky. But as the day wears on, clouds roll in quickly, and suddenly rain falls and thunder crashes. The tree in which the birds were playing is struck by a bolt of lightning, splitting it apart and setting it afire.

That beautifully shaped mountain is the wonder of the town. Its base is forested and green, filled with all manner of forest wildlife and wildflowers. Beyond the tree line, snow perpetually decorates the mountaintop. The magnificent mountain captures the hearts of photographers and painting artists. The quaint little town nestled at its base makes money off the postcards of that mountain. But unbeknownst to the town people, hot magma within the mountain is stirring itself up. Suddenly, the mountaintop explodes, raining out lava and boulders and ash. Within hours, the town is destroyed, and its ruins will forever be hidden under a deep layer of debris.

A sweet young girl just celebrated her eighteenth birthday with all her friends and family. Her life has just begun—she just had her first date that week, she has been accepted into her choice of university, she landed her dream job, and she’s planning to go on a mission trip to Africa for the upcoming summer. Life is exciting and fun for her, and everyone praises the potential inside her. But one evening, on her way home from her church’s youth event, where she had preached, a drunk driver is driving toward her on her lane. The head-on collision is fatal.

“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.” Psalm 90:12

It's tragic to think that true Christians at times forget this: how much less time I would spend on self and instead spend it serving the Lord if I can only remember today might be my last opportunity to honor Him in this world before I head Home.
