How should I view my life? How important is my life in the scope of eternity? Have you thought about that? How do you view your life? How you view your life matters. God has given you a job to do. You have a mission to accomplish. In light of that this is how God views you:
As a father loves and pities his children, so the Lord loves and pities those who fear Him [with reverence, worship, and awe].
For He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust.
As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it and it is gone, and its place shall know it no more. Psalm 103:13-16.
We are dust. Our lives are fragile. We are like grass, here one day and gone the next. It is important that we see our lives in this light. As we see ourselves the way God sees us we will not take our lives for granted. We will also learn to value the time we have been given. Please remember that you are dust. I don’t say that to diminish who you are but I say that to make you realise time is not on your side! Time is not on our side. There are so many things God has for us. There are so many people we need to touch. There are so many people we haven’t met yet.
If your time came right now would you be able to confidently say that you have made your mark? Would you be able to look to heaven with confidence and say I have finished my race?
I couldn’t. I haven’t accomplished all that God has for me. I need more time.
Please remember, you are dust. You are like grass, here one day and gone the next.
What are you doing that is of worth?
That is how you should view your life.
