Breathing out milkweed
Milkweed is an apt illustration of the temporary nature of our days on earth. We usually look to the James verse to make the point (James 4:14) but I got stuck on this Isaiah verse this morning.
Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem? (Isaiah 2:22)
All the puffs we've already breathed are gone. The next breath is not promised. We only have the breath that's in in our nostrils now.
What will we do for Christ?
How will we live for Him?
Don't take too long to decide.
