Death and TaxesBy
I know I talk about death a bit, however when someone you know dies it can’t help but make you realise how precious and temporary life is.
A lovely lady at our church passed away on Saturday after battling health issues for some time.
In fact she was “meant” to die 24 years ago but God miraculously healed her then.
In her case she was undoubtedly looking forward to going to be with her Lord, although she will obviously miss her husband and family that is left behind.
So as I thought about Mary it made me think of some questions we all need to ask ourselves while we can.
1. Are you doing what you love doing? Are you enjoying your life now, regardless of how rich/poor/sick etc. you may be. Mary wasn’t well for some time but she lived her life to the full regardless
2. Are you dealing with regret?? There could be nothing sadder than to get to the end of your life and be filled with regret over all the things you didn’t say, didn’t do, didn’t put right. Mary’s only regret is that she left her husband behind. What regrets would you have if you died tomorrow.
3. Do you know where you’re going?? Both now in this life and after you die, do you know what your future is?? I do, Mary did. In fact those who were with her as she died said she was full of joy till the end because she KNEW where she was going.
Don’t let your life be any less than Mary’s. Enjoy it, love it and have genuine purpose in it.
