Last Sunday I shared how important it is to pass the baton of faith to those around us. My Mom (who passed away on September 22, 2009) certainly passed the baton of faith to me.
Today I want to share one of the things my Mom taught me while going through her cancer~~
2 Cor. 4:16-18 says, Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
No matter how many years we live, life is short!
James 4:14 says, Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
I may live twenty more years, two more years, two days or two hours but what matters most is how I choose to live the remaining time that I have left.
We don’t know when we are going to pass the baton so we need to make sure we are living a life that points others to Christ.
Have you learned that life is short? Are you purposely trying to pass the baton of faith to those around you?
I’m so glad you stopped by! I enjoy hearing from all of you. If you’d like to chat, you can follow me on facebook, I also love to add things to my pinterest boards and if you’d like to follow some of my pictures throughout the day, you can follow me on Instagram.
Have a blessed day!
