Vapor


“...you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”— James 4:14

You are a mist. The trap that keeps people from the liberty of eternal life is the folly of treating the life in this world as if it is eternal.

We make life heavy by acting as if we will always have the life we do.

We make ponderous plans because we think we have to guard this grave life against its becoming tarnished by the stain of failure—as though that stain is somehow permanent.

Life is a vapor. Yes, that means it might drift or disperse at any time. But there's more to see in the image of the vapor than just this. Life is also lighter than air.
