“Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.” Psalm 90:12
I learned this morning that some grandparents in my church had lost their grandson to a car accident recently.
That’s not the way it’s “supposed” to be! He was only twenty-three. All those years we assume will come, sometimes don’t.
When I was in my late twenties, we had someone come to our home to talk about life insurance. I will admit that it wasn’t my idea. I dug in as the salesman tried to convince us of the necessity of a life insurance policy. I refused to wrap my brain around the need for life insurance, despite his (accurate) information to the contrary.
Realizing that I have no certainty of tomorrow is a necessity if I am going to approach each today in a Godly way.
How will I navigate today? I quickly gravitate to the Martha/Mary story. Will I see the Big Picture, or will I settle my attention on lesser things?
In a way, I am now that young salesman I referred to earlier. I have a view of the future that some choose not to have. How will I persuade the “uninsured” of their need?
We will have to make a next-life decision before we get to that next life. We will either have eternal life insurance or we won’t. There will be no “policies” sold on Judgment Day!
