Puff

Puff

James 4:14 says life is like a vapor. It appears for a bit and then it’s gone.
 
The effect of a vapor can be dramatic, though. A whiff of a fresh rose from the garden or waking up to the smell of bread baking is nice. On the other hand, you won’t like the aroma when you upset a skunk or cut into an onion. 
 
I’d ask these questions of music artists and fans alike:
What kind of smell will your brief “puff” of life leave behind? Will you live a life of grace or leave people with a sense of disgust whenever your name is mentioned?

I usually leave the devotional thoughts to Sony here at MusicScribe, but this was just on my mind.

Maybe it’s just for me; maybe it’s for me and someone else.
