Psalm 39:5 ” You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before You. Each man’s life is but a breath. “

Take a deep breath…inhale and exhale slowly.  Without breath, you’re dead.  Your life force is gone, your body shut down.  This verse looks at the very fleeting nature of one’s existence.  That life is but one breath away from dying…and that our life span is measured as a blink of the eye in the eternal scheme of things. Let us then determine that while we’re  here on earth for such a short duration,  our focus should be on what we can do to better the world, rather than just exist in it.
