Job 14:1 Man that is born of a woman Is of few days, and full of trouble. 2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: He fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
Job is hurting. Life has been very difficult for him. But there is a major lesson for us all. Life is hard. Trouble is common to man. We are all going to live only a short life. We will all have problems.
This is why we learn to focus on another life, heaven, eternity. This world is only preparation for our real life, for our eternity with the God of all creation. We should never become so stuck on this life and what is happening here that we do not realize that there is more to life than what we are dealing with.
Are you focus on this world or the God of this world and the next? I want to trust Him and look to Him and all that He has for me. I want to live for the God of heaven. What about you?
