James 4:14 and Fog settled On Trees Glacier National Park, Montana.
“Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” James 4:14
Life is a Morning Fog
When I study the Bible I prefer the richer translation, but sometimes I like how the common language translations word a phrase. The New Living Translations records James 4:14 as, “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”
This morning fog in Glacier National Park didn’t linger long. With the sunrise it gave way to a gorgeous day.
The Scripture says, one’s life is “like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” Our finite lives don’t last long. In light of eternity the good and bad here will shortly disappear. The Bible calls us to trust our everlasting God and not ourselves with our time here.
