NOV 3: Life Is Fleeting

All flesh is like grass
and its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers
and the flower falls,
but the word of the Lord remains forever.

What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

1 Peter 1:24-25, James 4:14, Ephesians 5:15-17, NRSV
