My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle. Job 7:6
Job says that his days are "swifter than a weaver's shuttle." Life passes so quickly it is almost over before we realize it. The Bible says this is the chronology of eternity. Though you live to be seventy, eighty' or ninety years old, that is but a snap of the finger compared to eternity.
Put your hand on your heart and feel it beat. It is saying, "Quick! Quick! Quick!" We have only a few brief years at the most. Let's live them for the Lord.
