  • Getting to know God in a personal way should be our greatest priority in life. If we plan to spend eternity with him, then it would seem like a good thing to get to know him now. And it may be later than you think.

    We are here today and gone tomorrow. Realizing how quickly life goes by is a good priority to have. James said our life is like a vapor (4:14). We must then have our priorities right. We only get one chance at life on this earth. The poet said, “Only one life, ’twill soon be past.”
