Job 14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
The primrose paths we are blessed to travel are often interrupted by trouble. Our agendas are disrupted, our desires are disappointed and our worlds are rocked by suffering.
I can only imagine how a huge highlight in the lives of many, the end of the Boston Marathon, was suddenly turned into a nightmare and a national tragedy. An eight year old boy had just hugged his dad, congratulating him on the success of finishing the 26.2 mile race. He returned to the curb and then was killed by a terrorist bomb. Consider the thoughts of that poor dad who had just completed a milestone in his life one moment and then had his son brutally murdered in the next.
Truly, our days are few and full of trouble.
It pays to invest in an eternity in which there is no heartache, no sickness, no goodbyes and no dying. I hope those who lost their lives in the Boston bombing had put their trust in Christ.
