Do not wait for death to talk to people!
My grandfather died a number of years ago and I was always too busy to go visit him. I was somewhat hurt a bit that after my parents got divorced they kinda disappeared. He was my favorite grandfather as he taught me fishing, hunting, camping and I loved being around him. But I waited too long to visit. I did see him once before he passed but it was not enough.
Well now my biological dad is potentially coming to the end of his days and the story is close to repeating itself. But what makes this hard is that I have not had a “relationship” with him per-se as he and my mom got divorced early (less than 5 years old) and so never really got to know him.
He and I look identical and I have a lot of his same interests (cars, computers and other things) but I cannot really say that I know him well. We talk now after connecting again when my Grandmommie (his mom) passed and it was great for her to see he and I standing at her bedside.
So it made me think about how selfish I can be when it comes to sharing with others. So for those that read this blog, do not wait for death to be knocking on people’s lives before you talk with them. Nothing is more precious than the lives we share in this world and nothing is more important than connecting people to Jesus.
So do not wait for death because it sure is not waiting for us . . .
P.S. Satan: I so look forward the fulfillment of Revelation 20:14 “Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire . . .” Essentially when God kicks your arse in the pit and you NEVER get back out.
