1 Chronicles 29:15 NLT
[15] We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.

Good Morning!
We’ve all heard the sayings like “never a dull moment” or “moment of truth.” We’ve come to know many times in our lives that stand out as a “memorable moment” and then there’s those times that have been “never a dull moment” or “for the moment.” But David tells us in 1 Chronicles 29:15 that we are only here in this life for a moment.

What is a moment? Miriam-Webster defines a moment as “a comparatively brief period of time

Moments are what life is made of. Memories in our lives are made of those special moments. We also have moments of opportunity every day to help others by being a difference maker and share God’s love in words or actions, no matter how young or old we are. Let us all be keenly aware and not let those precious moments slip by with little regard to how impactful we can be in someone else’s life. You never know how just a short moment of kindness could eternally impact someone’s life.

Think about this — what if God appeared to one of us in a burning bush moment, like He did with Moses, and revealed that tomorrow is the day that I send my Son to bring home all of my beloved? This is the Revelation moment that we’ve all been waiting for and watching for. Would we not spend every moment we could trying to tell everyone we could to believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior? This is the way we should approach each and every day — like it is the day before Jesus is coming.

Luke 12:39-40 NLT
[39] “Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would not permit his house to be broken into. [40] You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.”

1 Corinthians 15:52 NLT
[52] It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.

God has given us this “moment of grace” in this lifetime for us to choose how we spend eternity. As God’s remnant, it is our duty to share His love and grace with those around us to help them also take advantage of God’s “moment of grace.” For once this life is passed, that moment is over as everyone will stand before Him in judgement.

Ezra 9:8a NLT
[8] “But now we have been given a brief moment of grace, for the LORD our God has allowed a few of us to survive as a remnant.

Revelation 20:12 TLB
[12] I saw the dead, great and small, standing before God; and The Books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to the things written in The Books, each according to the deeds he had done.

This life should not be filled with moments of worry about getting more stuff or obtaining more wealth. We have but just a moment on this earth and then we enter into eternity. God wants us to spend our time here seeking Him first and bearing fruit for the Kingdom of Heaven. It is there we will no longer have moments, but just eternity and 10,000 years will seem like just the beginning. In comparison, this life is just a fleeting moment. It is this moment that decides our eternity. Don’t hold onto the things of this world but lay up your treasures in heaven, sharing His love in every moment of opportunity.

Matthew 6:19-20 NKJV
[19] “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; [20] but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

Matthew 6:27 NLT
[27] Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

Matthew 6:33 NKJV
[33] But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

I love you and am praying for you today!
