To the Point: The Time Is Now

I just received a message that a friend of mine’s mother passed away this morning.  He already lost his wife and children in a tragic car wreck years ago.

Saturday I’m going to a candlelight memorial for a young couple who were killed while riding a motorcycle last year.  They were on their way home from a bible study about marriage and were excitedly making plans for their upcoming wedding.

We often live like life is guaranteed…but it isn’t.  We waste time, we ignore loved ones, we stay busy with things that aren’t truly most important to us because we plan to do all those important things “later.”

Here’s the point I’d like you to consider:

If you knew for a fact that you were going to die tomorrow, how would you change the way you live today?  Those changes reveal where your priorities should be.

  1. I am sorry your friend has lost his mother. I am sorry the young couple did not live to see their wedding day. God does not promise us tomorrow. We do get so involved in our lives we do not stop to smell the roses, to tell those we love how much they mean to us. We have all lost loved ones that we did not visit enough because we were too busy. Life is hard, it is sad, it is short, and time passes too quickly. God bless your friends who are now gone. I know you will miss them.
