Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it."

 Could we go there for just a moment?  The writer of James asks this question:“For what is your life?  It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”   One translation says:  “Your life is but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears (into thin air).

ARE YOU WAITING TO LIVE?

How often have we said “I’m waiting for the day when…?   
One day I’m going to go back to school.  Just you wait, I’m going to write that book or follow my dream.  One day I’m going to be happy again.  I’m waiting for the day, when things are going to change in my life.  I’m waiting for that day when doors will open for me.  Just wait; someday, somehow, sometime my day is coming. “

The sum of a life, if calculated using the average life span of 70 years, figures about 25,550 days.  If we are not careful we will spend a lifetime of thousands of days waiting for one day.  

Can life really be lived out in One Day?    The writer of James once wrote,  “Our life is like a vapor it’s here today and gone tomorrow.”  Our days are numbered and none of us know if we will get to “one day.”  Wouldn’t it be a dreadful loss if we never started to live and died waiting for “one day?”
