Jeanne Calment lived to be 126 years old. She is perhaps the longest-living human being of modern times. Sometime after her 120th birthday, she was asked to describe her vision for the future. She replied, “Very brief.”
Whether we live a long time, or just a few years, the human existence in this life seems quite brief. Let us always remember to make the best of the time we have here on earth. We have so precious little time to worship and serve God and tell others about Jesus!
“The length of our days is seventy years—or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away…Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”—Psalm 90:10, 12).
