Someone died today

October 19, 2007

Right outside my office someone died today. I watched the aid cars, police, and investigation for hours. A life, a precious life, came to an end. I don’t know their story, but I do know their life came to an end and for those who loved them that end came too soon.

Earlier this week someone I know witnessed a jumper fall from a bridge. Over the weekend a co-worker’s mother figure’s life ended. Last week a past co-worker/friend died in a plane crash. The shock of these deaths are still being felt across the communities they were a part of.

At the memorial service for my co-worker, one of the things that impacted me the most was the fact that he had taken care of the important things to prepare for his future. At 34 years old he was outwardly prepared to die. We never know what will happen to us each day, and how our day will end, but we can make the decisions to care about our future, both here on earth and in our eternal life. We can be prepared both outwardly and inwardly.

Are you living with short accounts in your relationships?
Do you have a plan for the future?
Do those closest to you know how you feel about them?
Do you have unfinished business that you need to take care of?
Do you have a will? A life insurance policy?
Do you have confidence about where you will spend eternity?

Someone died today…..but it wasn’t you. Are you choosing to live?
