“You have no idea what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? No more than a mist, which appears for a moment and then disappears.”
This is perhaps one of the verses in the bible that to me has generated a lot of spin offs…You prabably heard about life is too short, live it…make each moment count…live well, laugh much, love often…but then the pinakamatindi of all the spin off of this verse for me is YOLO. It is so hugely popular that it has become one of the most commonly used hashtag and the mantra of both young children who want to act like adults and adults who are fond of acting like young children (with matching handsign ). I imagine that if God where to rewrite this verse during present times, using layman’s language for a change so his message will come accross quickly, he would prabably state this as, “Tomorrow is a big question…(insert YOLO hashtag and emoji here).” BUT then again wait! This is God we are talking about, so I am pretty sure He wouldn’t just simply end with #YOLO. Probably He would, in all His majesty, end this verse with #YOLOdir (read: You. Only. Live. Once. Do. It. Right).
