“Every man dies… not every man really lives.”
The Bible says, “It is appointed unto man once to die, but after this, the judgment”. Death is a guaranteed part of living, and when it comes, there is no avoiding it. Benjamin Franklin once said that “nothing is certain but death and taxes”.
Franklin was right… almost.
How you are judged upon passing through death’s door is as certain as death itself. What you did (or didn’t do) in this life, you will have to give an account for.
Did you care for the poor?
Did you help those in need?
Did you love your neighbor as yourself?
What did you do with Jesus?
So, the question is: Do you want to really live?
Regardless of where you are, or what you’ve been through, it’s not too late. Right now, resolve in your heart to make your life count for the Kingdom of God.
