When we blink, we lose sight for a second. Not even a second. An actual blink takes 300 to 400 milliseconds. Since there are 1000 milliseconds in a second, the blink of an eye is actually about a third of a second.
I work with small children. You can’t take your eyes off of them for a split second. You can’t get distracted or they can get into anything. Sometimes things they shouldn’t.
Did you ever see the movie, Up? SQUIRREL!
Dug, the dog, was constantly being easily distracted by squirrels.
That was his blink. His distraction. His temptation.
What is it that in the blink of an eye can so distract you from your current path?
I’d highly suggest that we all keep our eyes wide open when it comes to allowing temptation to distract us. We all want to be included when the last trumpet sounds. After all, it will happen in the blink of an eye.
It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.
