16 Prize your time, because the days are evil. [In his Letter #5, George Fox wrote: "Do not look back, nor be too forward, further than you have attained; for you have no time, but this present time. Therefore prize your time for your souls' sake!" Those who don't attain purification while on earth will forever regret they wasted their time on earth in foolish pursuits. From the Word of the Lord within: "For every generation of the earth, how one spends their time has now been defined. Those who wait on the Lord shall inherit a new earth. Wait on God at every opportunity; make the most of every opportunity. You must wait on the Lord to receive salvation."]
4 Man is like a vapor; his days are like a shadow that passes away.
5 Behold, you have made my days like a handbreadth, and my age is as nothing before you. Truly every man at best is only a breath. Selah.
6 Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.
|James 4:14 |
14 Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. For what is your life? It is just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
