"We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities,
like the wind, take us away."
From Mark, verse 34 got my attention. Here it is:
"It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his slaves in charge, each with his work . . . Therefore, keep awake--for you do not know when the master of the house will come . . ."
Mark seemed to be connected to Isaiah, or Isaiah to Mark, either way I found myself with these questions "What is my work?" and "What is taking me away from it?"
My uncertain hope is that I am doing the work that I have been given and that I will be found doing it when the Master of the Kingdom returns.
