Topic: THE JOURNEY OF LIFE
Text: Ecclesiastes 3:2KJV
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
Life is seen differently by all, likewise the journey of life is seen in different perspectives by different people and as such, everyone lives life differently base on their perspective, orientation and believe. Life indeed is a journey from one point to another point meaning there is a starting point or beginning and there is an end point or final destination and of course this journey is a function of time.
Some believe life on earth is only a journey from birth to death just as our scriptural text states “a time to die and a time to be born”, they have the opinion that after death on earth, nothing more and so a lot with such perspectives about life’s journey, live their life anyhow in the way they want. To them they are not accountable to anyone how they live, to them it’s better to live life to the fullest having fun, pleasing the desires of the flesh and wordly pleasures. Some turn themselves to oppressors of their fellow, some are embodiment of wickedness, some their aim to is make money and amass wealth by all means through corruption, cheating, prostitution, stealing e.t.c
Some biblical examples of men who have this perspective about the journey of life are:
* The judge in the parable of Jesus in Luke 18:2 who feared neither God nor man, so he was just a man by himself who believed he was born and then would die and nothing more
* The rich fool in the parable of Jesus in Luke 12:16-23 “20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. 22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.”
Beloved, there is more to the journey of life than a time to be born and a time to die and that was why Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:19 that “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.” So don’t journey through life like the judge that fear neither God nor man, don’t live like the rich fool who think of himself alone. Live as one who will give account to his maker at the end of his journey. God bless you
* Father, take my life and let it be consecrated unto you in Jesus Name.
