FWIW (For What It’s Worth) fireworks are awesome. Seriously, I don’t know if it’s possible for someone not to like fireworks. I went to two events with two great display of fireworks this year. My favorite fireworks are probably the ones that explode, then explode again, and look like a scattering affect. Almost like they are afraid of the other fireworks!
As I watched the beautiful array of fireworks, I could not help but think of those whose lives are like fireworks. They go up with all the potential in the world, go BOOM, and look beautiful, and then they are gone. Zac Smith’s story is a beautiful firework. A life well-lived.
The fireworks, while amazingly beautiful, also make me chuckle from time to time. Whoever is footing the bill for this thing puts thousands of dollars into it, and yet there are still dud fireworks. They shoot up into the sky and then fall right back down to earth, having never burst into a colorful display, and then some fireworks don’t even go all the way up!
The Bible tells us that life is a vapor or a mist (James 4:14). It appears for a short time and disappears. It is like a firework. It goes up into the sky, and then it’s done. Ultimately, whether or not people admire your life’s work is up to you. Are you going to be a dud, or are you going to be a beautiful firework?
