Christmas is a season, so, Merry Christmas!

In this video, I dive into some word origins and Bible verses that have to do with the brevity of life. Natura is the Latin root for nativity and nature and natural — and it has to do with things coming into being.

We often treat life like a giant game of dodgeball and we hear about someone dying we think “Oh, that’s too bad they got hit with the ball” as if we’re never going to get hit. We’ll be the last man standing forever.

The word of God teaches us otherwise. you and I will spend a brain-fracturing long amount of time in eternity in the life to come, whether in heaven or in hell, compared to the short decades we spend here in this life.

With each 52-week unit of time known as one year that we experience the subsequent 52-week units of time seem to go by faster with each passing year.

Isn’t that true?

Didn’t Christmas seem to come around every 10 years or so when you were a little kid?

So here are seven Bible verses on the brevity of life:

1. Psalms 90:10

2. Psalms 144:4

3. Job 9:25-26

4. 1 Chronicles 29:15

5. Luke 12:20

6. James 4:14

7.  Hebrews 2: 14-15

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ have changed death from a black pit into a well-lit door.

The great playwright and Catholic convert Tennessee Williams wrote something fascinating and very practical about the brevity of life. I’ll close with this:
“In the time of your life–live!” That time is short and it doesn’t return again. It is slipping away while I write this and while you read it, the monosyllable of the clock is Loss, loss, loss, unless you devote your heart to its opposition.”
