READING :: Ecclesiastes 9:1-12

I heard somebody say one time, “I need Ash Wednesday because i live like i’m never going to die.”

I think that we need Ash Wednesday and Lent because we live like we are never going to die.

I'm wondering if today we could stop and remember, like yesterday, that from dust we came and to dust we will return. That our life is a gift and we would be nothing more than dust if it were not for God. We remember this a bit every sabbath, that the world doesn’t revolve around us and our efforts, that all we have, including our very lives are a gift from God. We remember that again today.

? Have you thought about your life as a gift lately ?
