It is too often mankind takes for granted life. There are some that assume they are in control of everything. And when an event is not explained and or controlled, why then it is "nature" which can be explained of course by science. I am a firm believer that there are forces out of our control. That God created the heavens and earth and that we have guidelines by which to live. This in turn, with our faith and prayer through Jesus Christ will be our saving grace.We don't have a clock that tells us when our time is up on this planet. But we do know what it takes to keep God in our hearts. We know that if we treat our fellow man with the same respect we expect we are doing the right thing. Yes, we have to pray for wisdom and understanding. As well as praying for forgiveness for our sins. We may even have to protect our families at some cost. However our intention is what God looks at. Are we evil and deceitful? Are we not willing to be humble and except our faults?
Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble. By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. A wise man has great power, and a man of knowledge increases strength; for waging war you need guidance, and for victory many advisers. Wisdom is too high for a fool; in the assembly at the gate he has nothing to say.
