We don’t know “what a day may bring forth” (Proverbs 27:1). We are given time on earth in a body that is dying but houses a soul that will exist eternally in a new body or in damnation. What we do in our time here will determine whether we have eternal life or eternal death. “Every man has his day,” we say.

Jesus told of a man who was very successful financially but was very much a failure in things of God that would have secured him in eternity. The man raised such abundant crops that he planned to build larger barns for storing his goods and live off them for many years. He would take life easy and enjoy his wealth and even spoke to his soul about his plan. “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” (Luke 12:20)?
