There was a story in the paper some time ago about a 29-year old man. He was married, and had three kids. All three kids were under five years of age. He is an attorney in Illinois.
One day he woke up with a headache. As the day went on, it got more painful. Then he had difficulty seeing. Then he had difficulty walking. He went to the doctor. The doctor said, “You have a brain tumor that will require special surgery right away. If you survive the surgery, then there could be a critical time of recovery for about a year. If you survive that, then each year after that you can be more assured of a full recovery.” He made it through the surgery. He made it through that first year.
Then he was interviewed by a newspaper. A reporter asked him, “Have you learned anything through all of this?” “Oh, I sure did,” he replied, “I learned that your life is on loan.”
I think of what this attorney went through. I reflect on what he said. I consider all the cruel, demeaning words I hear people speak against others who weren’t born in America, but who are simply trying to survive in this life. Your life is on loan. Your next life is FOREVER!
YOU ARE AN ETERNAL BEING….ENDINGS ARE NOT IN YOUR DESTINY!
YOU CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IF YOU WANT IT, BUT ONLY IF THERE IS NOTHING ELSE YOU WANT MORE!
