We work so hard among the things of men. Everyday we add to the calluses of some certain part of our body, produced by the diligence we are expected to employ. We are tossed into the fray by the expectations of the body. Have we let a tumult define who we are.
Is it necessary that this tumult consume our thoughts? Does the body need to dictate who we are? The reason why we do these things is what is important. What motivates us? Doesn’t our motivation depend on the eyes of our soul? But where are those eyes fixed?
Do we allow our eyes to be fixed on the temporary; those shining little objects offered as if pacifiers? Or are we diligent to remember the truth that lays before every man?
Everyday is opportunity to remember the coming judgment. Everyday is opportunity to do the will of our God. There is a Holy pen in the Holy Hand of the Holy One of God. Isn’t it wise to provoke it to write our name in the book of life?
Consider this prophecy in the book of Daniel chapter 12:
1“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. 2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars.”
See how pale the things of man become when the judgment is remembered.
Those who endure winter well are they who have prepared. There is a brilliantly white winter approaching; a time when the work of man will not be possible. Now is the time to prepare! See how the leaves have fallen. Isn’t the season of God imminent?
