They say you should live each day as if it is your last. I dare say none of us do this. I know I’m not, and I can’t think of one person I know who is, at least to where it can be seen.
So, if you only had days to live, what would that look like? What would you do? With whom would you want to be? Where would you go? Are there things you want to say to certain people?
I often think about this, not in a depressing way but a being prepared way. I think about my daughters and things I want to tell them. So, one of my goals is to write each of them a letter which when I die they will find in my Bible.
One thing I think most about is those in my family who aren’t Christians or at least living like the Bible instructs us to live our lives. We often don’t say anything because they might get mad at us. I figure if I’m dying, they can get mad and it will not matter. I won’t be here much longer anyway!
Then, I think…I should be doing all this now, while I know I have today. But something holds me back. I pray for those who I see not obeying God’s word. I pray He gives me opportunity to talk to them, the wisdom to say the right words in love, and courage through His Spirit.
We all need to wake up each day and live like it may be our last day. Be the example, the love, the soft place for someone to fall, and more than anything else…be Jesus!
