B.The song makes the statement "Some
day I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying."
C.How would our lives be different?
D.James 4:13-17 our lives are but a vapor James 4.13Go to now, ye
that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a
year, and buy and sell, and get gain: James 4.14Whereas ye know
not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4.15For that ye
ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. James 4.16But now ye
rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. James 4.17Therefore to
him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
E.Psalms 90:10 & 12we should number our days Psa. 90.10The days of our
years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be
fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut
off, and we fly away. Psa. 90.12So teach us to
number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
5.22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as
unto the Lord. Eph. 5.23For the
husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and
he is the saviour of the body. Eph. 5.24Therefore
as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands
in every thing. Eph. 5.25Husbands,
love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Eph. 5.26That he
might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, Eph. 5.27That he
might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or
any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Eph. 5.28So ought
men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth
himself. Eph. 5.29For no
man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the
Lord the church: Eph. 5.30For we
are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. Eph. 5.31For this
cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his
wife, and they two shall be one flesh. Eph. 5.32This is a
great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Eph. 5.33Nevertheless
let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the
wife see that she reverence her husband.

4:31-32 Ephesians 4:31Let all
bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice: Ephesians 4:32And be ye
kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for
Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
A.Colosians 3:8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath,
malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
B.James 4:11Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that
speaketh evil ofhisbrother, and judgeth his brother,
speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou
art not a doer of the law, but a judge
C.Angry Words - "Angry words, oh let
them never from the tongue unbridled slip. May the hearts best impulse ever
check them ere they soil the lips."
18.21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall
my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Matt. 18.22Jesus
saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times
seven. Matt. 18.23Therefore
is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account
of his servants. Matt. 18.24And when
he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand
talents. Matt. 18.25But forasmuch
as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and
children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. Matt. 18.26The
servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience
with me, and I will pay thee all. Matt. 18.27Then the
lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him
the debt. Matt. 18.28But the
same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an
hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying,
Pay me that thou owest. Matt. 18.29And his
fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience
with me, and I will pay thee all. Matt. 18.30And he
would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. Matt. 18.31So when
his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told
unto their lord all that was done. Matt. 18.32Then his
lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I
forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Matt. 18.33Shouldest
not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on
thee? Matt. 18.34And his
lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all
that was due unto him. Matt. 18.35So
likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
A.Matthew 5:23-24 Matt. 5.23Therefore if
thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath
ought against thee; Matt. 5.24Leave there thy
gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and
then come and offer thy gift.
B.James 2:13For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed
no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
