James 4:14 NASB "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. For you are just a vapor that appears for a little while, and then vanishes away."As I grabbed for the tool, I thought about my father in law! Today's verse should encourage us to make the best of each day for we know not what tomorrow brings or how long we will be on this earth! I have been blessed to get some tools from my father in law, a wonderful and gifted carpenter, who went to be with Jesus many years ago. Holding the tool that he used brought back memories of watching him work, his skill and craftsmanship and the knowledge that he shared with me. Now he is only a memory that I hold in my heart. Today's verse says that we are just a vapor that appears for a little while, then vanishes away. Let's make the most of our time here on earth, that even in our "vapor" stage, we will be remembered for the way we lived to honor God! peace, tom
