Living on Borrowed Breath

Just the other day, I had a Snapple peach tea. Mmmm! 

 There are two reasons why I enjoy this drink. For one, it's tasty, and for two, it contains a fun fact on the cap. This particular cap read "The average person has 23, 000 breaths a day." 

Think of it - we inhale and exhale thousands of times a day. About 23,000 times. Wow! And most of this breathing is involuntary. We don't think about it. It just happens. In and out, in and out, and on and on we go.

But we should think about it. We should think about where our breath comes from and why we all have it.

God's Word tells us the answer to the where and why. "He himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything." [Acts 17:24-28] "Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD (of life)." [Psalm 150:6] 

Let's remember - we walk and talk and work and play on borrowed breath.
