Faithful to the End

January 15th, 2012

RG AUDIO 011512Psalm 39

At its best, life is short. The psalmist refers to our days as “a mere handbreath.” This properly means the spread of the hand; the palm. This natural measure is smaller than the length of the “foot.” The lesson for us to learn is that in place of our vanity God can fill our hearts with his grace so that we might be ready for death every day and hour.

Since life is brief and ever so precious, let’s not waste any of it. Let’s look for every opportunity to tell our family we love them; to love and serve Jesus with all our being; and to be faithful to the purpose God has given us.

What if, when you have left that church or place of employment, your portrait is hung on the wall. What do you hope that brass plaque beneath your portrait will say about you? Peter Drucker, the world’s foremost management thinker, said that he hoped it would say, “He kept the faith.”

At the end of our earthly life, may we hear our Lord say, “‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’” (Matt. 25:21a).
