Life is short.
I look for pictures each day to go with the Psalm of the day. So I typed into Google "mortal man is only a vapor" and hit search. Somehow it decided to search for "life is short." It's not quite as poetic, but I guess it sums it all up.
But the David (the psalmist) contrasted the "get what you can while you can" attitude with his desire.
v.7 "Now, Lord, what do I wait for?
My hope is in You"
"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
Let me encourage you to use today's Psalm as a reminder to set priorities in your life based on knowing God and His word. Join David in saying "My hope is in You."
Another good topic to discuss today would be vs.1-2. I'll let you think of your own little devotion on these verses.
