Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble (Job 14:1).
This life has so many blessings. God gives us more than we ever deserve, and we should be thankful for every blessing.
However, along with the blessings, there are pains, struggles, and difficulties. Job summarizes this earthly life as “of few days and full of trouble.” At this time in Job’s life these words were very appropriate. Your life may never be the struggle Job faced, but we still see life fly by and our struggles mount over the years.
It should cause us to look forward to the eternal city, where there is not a single struggle. It should also cause us to tell each person we can to overcome the struggles of this life by preparing for heaven. There, life will be eternal and empty of trouble.
