Human life is like grass
we grow like a flower in the field.
After the wind blows, the flower is gone,
and there is no sign of where it was. | Psalm 103:15-16
How is life like a flower? Life is brief. It is here one day and gone the next. Sometimes life ends unexpectedly just as a flower that is burned up by the sun and dies before having lived an entire season.
Life is like a flower. We must care for our life and for other flowers in order to survive. Sometimes flowers die because we neglect to water and feed them. We neglect to realize our worth and the worth of other flowers around us. We we will not be able to feed our flowers, we will die prematurely and if we forget to inspire ourselves and other people around us, we will die prematurely.
Life is like a flower. We don’t know when our lives will end. Its like a flower in the field is killed without any notices. This gives us an inspiration to cherish our life from the moment we woke up each morning until we end our day in our bed. We don’t know when our life will end. It don’t have any notices and any moment our life may be taken by God.
Comprehending that life is like a flower has a positive impact upon us. If I comprehend the brevity of life, I will live each day as if it were my last. Indeed, it may be my last day to live. Think about this: What would you do today if you knew you were going to die tomorrow? Would you change anything about yourself?
