Thursday, December 20th: Job 13-15, Revelation 16: 12-21 ~ Nathan

Job 14:7-12
“At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail.
[8] Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil,
[9] yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.
[10] But a man dies and is laid low; he breathes his last and is no more.
[11] As the water of a lake dries up or a riverbed becomes parched and dry,
[12] so he lies down and does not rise; till the heavens are no more, people will not awake or be roused from their sleep.

A tree gets a second chance at life, we as people don't. This may motivate us to do many things, but most important is a needed dedication to living for the Lord.

As Christmas is coming soon, as well as a new year, I want in the new year to be more motivated and dedicated to living for the Lord.
