Teach us Lord to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.
There are 86,400 seconds in a day. Some will wake up this morning and live out those 86,400 seconds; however, others will not. Every day your life is either pointing people towards a right relationship with God, or your life is pointing people away from God. How you live makes a difference. The choice is yours. How will you choose to spend your 86,400 seconds today?
On average, 7700 people die every day in America. That is 7700 people who leave this earth to spend their eternity in heaven with Jesus Christ, or separated from Him forever in hell. There are no do-overs. In the verse above, King David asks the Lord to help him realize the…
“Brevity of Life.”
Please listen closely: the way we parent, coach, live our life, lead and influence others today will impact generations to come. So, what will be your legacy? Better yet, what will be your moral and spiritual legacy? Redeem your 86,400 seconds every single day, because in reality, they could be your last.
Your greatest legacy will not be while you’re alive—your greatest legacy will be when you die and depart this earth. I encourage you and challenge you to leave a Godly legacy that will far out live you. Live your life every day with the end in mind.
Life on earth will soon pass—only what counts for Christ will last.
