You will someday be. – Bones. What a morbid but beautiful reminder from the future. from the past. A warning. From bones long buried, to bones still walking and destined to be buried. For dust you are, and to the dust you shall return. We will all be the same when our day comes, eventually bones buried in the dirt. Why do you walk this Earth then? WHY. ARE. YOU. HERE? what becomes of us? To build up treasures for what? Certainly not to take with you..
Are you walking in the valley of dry bones? I pray thats not you because there is life. There is reason and hope.
4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.”’”
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.
9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
(Ezekiel 37:4-10, New King James Version)
Life is but a vapor, here and gone in an instant. What are you doing?
