Read James 4: 1-17
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. Foe what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth
for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4:14
Several years ago, the Washington Post did an experiment. They took a world-class violinist and had him give a 45-minute free concert in the Metro Center in Washington D.C. He played on a violin that was valued at 3.5 million dollars. During his concert, he collected $32 in tips in his hat. Here is the crazy part of the story. The night before, he played in a sold-out arena and the cheapest tickets were $200 each!
People were so busy with their lives and the everyday hustle and bustle of the world that they never even had a clue of the beautiful 'free' gift that was put before them.
I must admit, after reading about this story, I began to feel a little convicted. I think each one of us is probably guilty of the same thing. We get so busy with school, sports, work, homework, Facebook, and hanging with friends that we do not take the time for the beautiful things that are free in our lives, the things that will matter the most one day.
How much time, today, have you spent with the One who gave His life for you? I am not trying to guilt you into more prayer or Bible reading, I promise. But if we are not careful, we can just count on God to be there for us later and walk right by Him so we can get to the things that we think are so important in our lives right now. Consider our theme verse: "For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."
Take time for the One Who died to set man free.
