The scriptures tell us that life is fleeting. Even a long life passes by in what seems like an instant. Almost like a shooting star that streaks across the heavens. Look quickly or you’ll miss it completely.
This being the case, the question in my mind is, “How do I make what little time I have count for something?” I wonder if part of the answer is to determine to give my very best to each moment, each opportunity as it comes along. If I do this, then the moments add up to days and the days to weeks and so on. Pretty soon, looking back at all the moments added up, I will see a life lived with as little regret as possible.
Only a handful of people make a significant enough impact on the world at large that their name is remembered past one generation. Yet the greatest impact may simply come by acknowledging the presence of God in every moment. And by doing so, leaving the indelible mark that only he can make as he works through you…moment by moment.
