Just a vapor

This is a true story that our night guard just told us last night.  He was walking to work on the side of the road.  He was walking about 6 feet behind two men who were walking in front of him.  The two men in front of him were talking with each other as they walked down the road.  Suddenly, a mini bus/taxi - like the one pictured above - lost control, brushed our guard's shoulder as it left the road and killed the two men in front of him.  How incredible is that?!  In just a split second, those two men lost their life.  It was almost as if death had brushed by our guard before it hit the other men. 

Oh people - our life is like a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow.  James 4:14 says, "Yet you do not even know what tomorrow will bring.  What is your life?  For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes."  Friends, make this day count for Jesus.  Don't waste another minute.  Don't waste another opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with that person.  In a second, that opportunity could be gone forever.
