What if today was your last day here on earth and you knew it?
I know a bad thought, right. But the truth is…each one of us will die one day and we have no true idea when.
You could be walking in the mall and have a heartache like my best friend’s brother did. You could have an aneurysm like my PawPaw. You could die in a car wreck like many of my friends children have. You could be shot in the line of duty. And the list goes on…
But what would happen if you knew that today at midnight God would call you home? After the initial I’m not ready God statement…what would you do? How would you interact with others?
Would you love your spouse differently?
Would you treat others the same as you did yesterday?
Would you hurry to make amends to those you have hurt or to those that have hurt you?
Would you love your children differently?
Would you spend the whole day with loved ones sharing your time with them?
Would you thank God for the life He has given?
Would you make love to your spouse with all the passion you had in you?
Some valid questions, right? The thing about life on this Earth is that one day that life will end. We are not guaranteed a tomorrow or even an hour…
So treat everyone as if today was your last day with them!
Lord, today you may take me home. My prayer for today is that I be the person you want me to be TODAY. Allow me to love as you love TODAY. Allow me to treat everyone with that love TODAY, as I may not have that opportunity tomorrow. Allow me to make amends, Father, TODAY for those who have harmed me or who I have harmed. Allow me to do not anything that would shame you TODAY, for I do not want to do anything TODAY that I would not want you to be a part of. Lord, let your light shine through me TODAY that someone will see you living in me. And Lord, let me praise you for TODAY.
